Why Do I Need a Robot? – Advantages of Renting Robotics

You may think of robots as a far-fetched fantasised idealism of the future, however there are many reasons why robots are fast becoming essential for hire within events, entertainment and hospitality industries.

The Robot Bodyguard

We’ve all been there: You’re lying in bed, it’s the early hours of the morning, the house is still and silent. But suddenly you hear a bump, a creek, something moves in the darkness. You lay afraid, engulfed in pitch-black fear. “…Is there someone there?”

Rise of the Cobots - A Brief Guide to Collaborative Robots

Machines have been utilised within factories for years, to aid with moving heavy loads and perform monotonous mass production tasks. They can often be immense, dangerous structures, kept within cages to protect factory workers, who are cautioned with horror stories of former incidents. But what if we were able to work in harmony, safely cooperating alongside these machines...

Are Robotic Animals the Future?

Are robots here to replace us?! Or could it be possible that one day, in the not so distant future, mechanised substitutes could replace the animal kingdom?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Upcoming Humanoid Robots Of 2018

The Modern Practical Use Of Robots

Are robots taking over the world?! - It’s a question which we often hear within the topic of artificial intelligence. But is this something which we should greet with fear or, like many electronic appliances, could robots become conventionalised as aids within the day to day running of our lives?

The Apprentice - Robots

It is with great interest that we await the arrival of the third episode of this series of the Apprentice. The mere fact that this episode is focusing on robots is testimony to the fact that robots are having a real impact on our every day lives.

I am sure that the first question that people will ask is...."what robot did they use for the apprentice?" The robot looks very similar to the Alpha 2 that is manufactured by Ubtech, a Chinese manufacturer of Robots. However, the colouring is different and it appears that the robot itself is called the Lynx which is very much aimed at the European consumer market.

So, the answer to the question that you are looking for is that the robot on the apprentice is called the LYNX. Whilst it looks lie the Alpha 2 it is actually the newest robot in their range.

It is a shame that the robot was most probably not shown in its best light. For example, we saw the robot fall over! Why did the robot fall over? Very simply, because the robot does not work best on carpet and requires a level flat surface. Walking robots of this size like the Nao robot require a level flat surface as they will not work well on carpet.

What the Apprentice failed to show is how robots are having an impact on our every day lives. Here at robots of london, we sell robots as receptionists, retail store assistants, sales assistants and a lot more.

We are proud of the fact that we installed the first ever robot receptionist in London and since then have supplied many more Companies with our software to enable them to have the perfect receptionist.
