The company has completed a $15 million series A funding round that will allow it to expand its project on the relay robots who will provide excellent room service.

These robots make it possible for the guests to fulfill all their room service needs and will also free up the staff to focus on others jobs. The robots will use Wi-Fi and 3 D cameras to interact with guests and to navigate from one place to another.

The manager of the Residence Inn on Century Boulevard, LA talks about how the robot in the hotel is a star among the guests. The robot has been named Wall-E, after the famous pixar movie Wall-E and gets a lot of attention from the hotel guests. The managers even pointed out how some order room service just to see and interact with Wall-E.
