Crowd-monitoring humanoid helps lost mall patrons

We had our share of Robovies, and let’s just say we have a healthy fear of ’em. Having said that, we are pretty confident that we would come darn close to fainting or reacting violently creature should approach the photo above us while shopping ever. Nevertheless, this humanoid was apparently allowed to run amok at Universal Citywalk Osaka as the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute is testing its ability to interpret the signals from cameras, sensors and RFID readers, and to determine whether customers are thoroughly lost. When it recognizes an individual perplexed, he wheeled over, confirms their state of confusion and politely offers guidelines for the destination of their choice. But you could tell us a serious look at the eyes and not to completely forget where you were trying to go – we triple-dog dare you.
