Web Catch: This adorable robot wants to bring you room service


Everyone, meet Savioke.

The room service-bearing 'bot is the brainchild of a startup company out of Sunnyvale, California.

In the video below, CEO Steve Cousins explains that Savioke's robots are designed for the service industry.

Apart from creating an artificial agent that makes charming sounds while delivering your toothbrush, Cousins' hopes to provide assistance to people in all walks of life. "We make robots that can move around by themselves in human spaces and help people out."

The little robots stand approximately 3-feet tall and weigh less than 100 pounds. They're currently on a trial run (or glide, if you will) in Crowne Plaza hotels in California.

If all goes as planned, Savioke could be delivering your next order of pigs in a blanket.
