There is now a robot designed to help lost shoppers. If Robovie determines that you are in a "wandering" state, it will approach and offer to give you directions. If you don’t want directions, it will then suggest you visit various nearby businesses.
Interesting idea, but I imagine it won’t be long until someone decides to create a robot barker by programming a similiar robot to demographically categorize shoppers and then automatically advertise the appropriate businesses.
