Top 30 Robot Ideas in June

From Game-Playing Rehab Robots to LEGO Breakfast Machines

— June 30, 2018 — Tech
The top June 2018 robot ideas show just how integral agile, assistive bots are becoming to a range of settings, from retail stores to restaurants. Pop culture commonly offers visions of the future where robots are integral to a variety of industries and services, and these ideas are no longer far-out concepts but realistic representations of the present day. While the operations of the Spyce Food restaurant in Boston are almost entirely mechanized, The Smithsonian recently introduced SoftBank Robotics' Pepper as an interactive guide.

One of the best indicators of how mainstream robotics are becoming to business systems is the fact that Domino's now uses a bot powered by artificial intelligence to take phone calls.
