Event planners are always looking for a way to make their parties or functions memorable, and the latest technical innovation to hit the UK looks set to have delegates feeling very snap happy indeed. Yep, we’re talking about a fully functioning selfie-taking robot.
Christened ‘Selfiebot’, this is purported to be the world’s first robot photographer, and it has already enjoyed success in countries across Asia and in Australia, working with big-name companies including Accenture and Virgin.
Fun photo booths at events have been a trend for a few years now, with silly props or cool filters often available for guests to make the most of. If you’re looking to stay ahead of the curve though, we think the Selfiebot will take the traditional photo booth experience to the next level.
The Selfiebot is free-standing
The bot roams among the crowd, and boasts a customised speech function, so you can programme it to recite your brand’s tagline or fun greetings to your guests. You can also employ your company colours on the bot’s home screen.
If you’re wondering how it all works, the Selfiebot snaps shots and then prints them instantly. It will also send the pic to guests via SMS or email, so you don’t have to worry about leaving your selfie keepsake behind after one glass of Prosecco too many.
Guests can take their pictures home with them
Selfiebot runs on smooth surfaces (including Astro Turf) and is suitable for outdoor events, so long as it’s not raining. The bot can be delivered to your event and can be set up in under 30 minutes, ready to get snapping.
Glenn Mainwaring, distributor at Selfiebot UK, said: “We are delighted to welcome Selfiebot to the UK. The event industry continues to evolve and works hard to keep up with the digital age, now venues and event planners have the opportunity to enhance their event through Artificial Intelligence. Selfiebot’s engagements really resonate with guests and we are hugely excited for the UK to experience Selfiebot first hand.”
