Urban Donation Motivating Robot

Urban Donation Motivating Robot

New technology mostly come from Asia. Just like this robot street collector from South Korea. The name is DONA, the “Urban Donation Motivating Robot” which has been in development since August 2009 by a team led by Min Su Kim at Hongik University.
DONA is the robot that interactively solicits donations from passers-by. The robot roams around in a public outdoor space and solicits donations from passers-by by engaging them through pet-like inter-action.
In this video the robot is doing work for Save the Children, funding for children’s education in Cote d’Ivoire.
