EMV PCI ATM Industry essential guide

The company Future Robot unveiled a new service robot that functions as a friendly kiosk, according to an article on gizmag.com.

The FURO-K moves around greeting customers with a synthesized voice to explain its features, rather than sit future robotsin a corner like some of its less-mobile counterparts, and its anime-inspired face even looks sad when the customers leave. The robot comes with an integrated circuit card reader and NFC, but also accepts credit card payments and prints receipts. The company has already sold the robot to hospitals in Korea, with other buyers in Brazil and France, according to the article. 

"The key strength of Future Robot, in my opinion, is its human-robot interaction technology which is compatible with all other robots. As Steve Jobs ushered in a new smart society with the convergence of art and technology, I hope that Future Robot will pioneer the new robot age with the convergence of robots and technology," said Future Robot's CEO, Se-kyong Song, who started the company following stints at Samsung and Philips robot research labs.
