Are robots set to take over from retail staff?
A shop in the US has been testing out a new set of retail robots designed to help customers find and visualise their purchases.
Fellow Robots, a technology company from Silicon Valley, partnered with a US-based hardware chain to develop robots programmed to find products, lead customers to the correct aisles and identify items with a built in 3D camera.
The robots can speak both English and Spanish and also have a 'holoroom', which let's customers visualise what different shop items will look like within a virtual-reality environment.
