Indian Robots . . .
Bangalore India . . . . There is a guy with fortune telling robot on the place opposite of the main entrance of Russell Market in Bangalore. Apparently the robot is about five years old, was built by someone from ‘down south’ who also supplies the tapes with the fortunes on them. Against a small contribution the robot will tell fortunes in one of four different languages ( Hindi, Tamil, Kannada & Telgu ) through headphones that are attached to its body.
As for the clock that is attached to the body of the robot, the owner just told me that it is a clock and ‘ Tells The Time ’ which makes it a truly multi purpose robot; telling both fortune and time.
