CES 2018 - LG is pushing more and more into the world of robotics, something it seems to be doubling down with at CES 2018 with their new CLOi branded robotics line.




LG's exciting new CLOi line of products come in three models for commercial use: Serving Robot, Porter Robot, and Shopping Cart Robot. Starting with the Serving Robot, we should expect to see LG's first robot creation at hotels, airport lounges, and even restaurants. This robot will deliver drinks and meals to customers with its built-in sliding tray - but hopefully it won't need a tip.


The Porter Robot will be used in hotels for express check-in and check-out, with payments accepted by the robots that will reduce waiting times. LG's new Porter Robot will even carry your suitcase around, but I'm sure it'll be carry-on size only and not your huge suitcase, or two, or five.


LG's more exciting Shopping Cart Robot will be used in premium supermarkets, where it sports a built-in barcode scanner that lets consumers quickly check prices, and it'll also display your shopping list. LG's new Shopping Cart Robot will direct you to the products you're in the store for, and you can even make requests with an accompanied smartphone app.


LG will be showing off their new CLOi robots at CES 2018 this week.
