Selfiebot – billed as ‘the world’s first robot phoographer’ – has arrived in London following overseas success in Italy and Australasia.

Selfiebot roams the floor of any event it is present at, interacting with visitors using a brand’s unique tone of voice and colours.

It provides guests with a memento to take home, printing photos instantly and sending them via SMS or email.

It encourages social sharing, and provides a data capture tool for re-targeting guests with follow-ups.

Selfiebot’s creators say it is suitable for many different surfaces including outdoor events, providing it isn’t raining.

Glenn Mainwaring, distributor at Selfiebot UK, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Selfiebot to London and the UK.

“The events 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.”
