The high-tech Yobot means no more lugging around heavy bags in public.

Yotel is known for its trendy compact rooms that are created by aircraft designers and feature luxurious facilities. One of its high-tech features is the Yobot, a robotic arm that can collect and store your luggage for $2 a bag. Recently Yotel in New York has synced Yobot with the JetBlue luggage handlers at JFK airport. Now guests can have their luggage seamlessly stored, picked up, and transported from the hotel to the airport.

Gerard Greene, CEO of Yotel, comments that:

We always knew there was potential for Yobot to not only store luggage but to actually transport items to the airport for guests who don’t want to be encumbered by heavy bags on their journey.
