Designed to gather information on how robots interact with people, the Snackbot has been carefully crafted for maximum approachability in every detail, from its height to its colour. “We figured, what better way to get people to interact with a robot than have something that offers them food?” its creator Dr Paul Rybski from the Carnegie Mellon University said. The Snackbot is but one soldier in a veritable army of new robots designed to serve and cook food and, in the process, act as good-will ambassadors, and salesmen, for a more automated future.
