Uniqlo Introduces Wakamaru

Uniqlo has recently introduced Wakamaru, a robotic staff member, to it's New York store.

Wakamaru is a "walking" talking and thinking member of the staff who's job is to greet and inform the customers on anything going on in the store. Aparently you can also have some basic conversation with her as she shows you around the store.

Pretty cool and innovative on Uniqlo's part as they teamed up with Mitsubishi for the project. As of now Wakamaru is 1 of 1 and resides in SoHo only.

To find out more about the project and to read Wakamaru's blog (yes it is actually updated by the robot, with some assistance I'm sure) check out NewYork-Tokyo.com
