The ‘AROUND B’ robot is a solution for bookstores that will work to enhance the customer experience and help readers feel relaxed as they browse for their next purchase.
The robot works by following a user around the store upon entry and offering a place for them to position books instead of needing to carry them around by hand. This will allow them to make their selections and then find a seating area to browse through each title to eliminate the need to awkwardly fumble through the pages while standing at a display. The robot can then carry the chosen works to the cashier for easier transactions.
The ‘AROUND B’ robot is the design work of Kim Seungwoo and Kyumin Ha of Naver Labs.
