From the look of the things, Samsung is working efficiently on the robotics department as well.

As the name suggests the Bot Care is a health care robot which not only takes care of patient medications, checks basic vitals and also give briefings regarding the patient health status.

And the Bot Retail is another interesting offering from Samsung, helping in retail stores. What will they work like? Help the buyers at the counter and shelves, I mean?

On one hand we have a growing number of online purchases and on the other companies are developing special robots for helping buyers in the retail stores... contradictory, but interesting!
