Gaja - an electronic shopping-assistant
"The shopping is the customers stay connected using an electronic shopping assistant as an emotional experience in memory" With the support of the electronic shopping assistant, the shopping itself is meant to become an emotional experience for the customer. The assistant Gaja is a robot, which is supposed to help both customers and service employees with their everyday business. The design is deliberately held abstract and sculptural to clearly differ from the usual, humanoid design of current robots. Main feature is the transportation of products directly to retailers or customers, for which the robot communicates via an integrated scanner and projector. Both the features and the design are intended to make the everyday experience when shopping to an exceptional and relaxing experience.
