About to be some unemployed people in Vegas
More hospitality robots are calling the Strip home.
Vdara has put into circulation a pair of three-foot-high robots to deliver amenities likes shaving and dental kits as well as food from the property’s cafe, the property said in a statement Monday.
Vdara is at least the second property in Las Vegas to employ the Relay robots made by Silicon Valley start-up Savioke. Renaissance Hotel installed two models in January ahead of the the Consumer Electronics Show. Rising Star Hotel in Mesquite, Nevada has also incorporated a Relay robot into its property.
The hospitality industry is experiencing a wave of technological disruption that is altering the way people check in to how they receive information and hotel amenities.
And here’s the kicker…the robots go for $2,000 a month. Uh, how many of those do you think these corporate behemoths are going to lease? Holy savings. The problem at some point is that we’ll eventually have to talk people into picking tomatoes and cucumbers instead of working in hospitality over on the Vegas Strip. Next 20 years are going to be WILD. Tell your kids right now to get an engineering degree. Robotics would be suggested.
