Singapore (January 21, 2013) – In the futuristic world of The Jetsons, robots are quintessentially part of the landscape where they take care of many chores, at home and at work. Have you ever wondered how cool it would be to have a robot serving you?
Well, wonder no more. If you want a taste of tomorrow, go check out Asia’s first and only robotic ice cream kiosk at City Square Mall. Developed by Robofusion®Inc., the interactive kiosk allows customers to design their own ice cream by simply touching a few buttons. Watch in awe as your ice cream is prepared right in front of you and delivered to you by the robot arm.
The kiosk is located at Basement 2 of City Square Mall (near Toys’R’Us/Baby’R’Us). There will be two ice cream flavours and six different kinds of toppings to choose from. Up to 40 ice cream flavours and toppings will be added subsequently.
With an introductory promotion, each serving is at $5/450g instead of $6/450g for two ice cream flavours and three toppings. The user-friendly kiosk is so easy to use that even your three year old can operate it.
Several payment modes are available at the kiosk. Customers can choose to pay by cash, ez-link card, VISA/Master, Robofusion® prepaid card or the new NFC SIM card payment. DBS customers will also enjoy 20% off the price.
