While the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has forced people to be extra vigilant and take protective measures in order to prevent themselves from contracting the infection, a shop owner in Tamil Nadu has found a creative way to ensure safety of customers as well as its staff.
Several videos of a saree-clad robot mannequin walking around with a sanitiser in her hand are going viral on social media. In the 44-second clip, the automated robot is seen going around the shop and offering sanitiser to the customers.
“Technology put to right use at one of the textile showrooms in TN. An automated mannequin draped in saree detects customers around and walks to them to provide sanitisers. Post Corona is sure to see intensified technological evolutions,” wrote IFS Sudha Ramen while sharing the viral clip.
