Robots take care of cinemas in South Korea

It looks like the cinema ticket sellers in South Korea might lose their jobs soon. A new robot from Ed Corporation has been placed all over cinema lobbies in South Korea, and customers can use them to check times and purchase tickets. It functions pretty much like a standard ticketing kiosk, except that it can move around by itself. In addition to serving tickets to customers, the robots double up as guards by patrolling the cinema after hours, sending a live feed to the guard station from its in-built camera. Looks like ticket sellers are going to have to work harder if they don’t want to end up being replaced. Watch a video of the cinema robots in action after the break:
