Butler service may be the trusted personal assistance you need, but have you met these robots?

Each one serves a unique purpose but all three of them look set to be useful aides for the hospitality industry.

At the CES Tech show in Las Vegas, South Korean electronics company LG unveiled a trio of robots as part of its “CLOi” range, an overarching brand for all of its robotic products.

The Serving Robot comes with a built-in sliding tray and can deliver food and beverages in hotels and airports; the Porter Robot will be able to handle “express check-in and checkout” services” as well as carry luggage up to a certain weight; while the Shopping Robot will follow customers around a store to collect their shopping and calculate their expenditure.

Don’t expect bellboys and waiters to be out of jobs anytime soon as these are mere “concept” robots which are not for general sale.

That said, these three bots will likely follow in the footsteps of the brand’s Airport Guide Robot and Airport Cleaning Robot, which are currently being tested at South Korea’s Incheon International Airport in Seoul in time to help out for the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
