The Olympic Games are best known for inspiring feats of human athleticism, but the stars of this year's Winter Olympics are more machine than human. Robotic marvels can be found throughout the event, working faithfully to aid and amaze attendees. Whether they are serving drinks, welcoming athletes and spectators at the airport, or even carrying the torch, these robots are bridging the gap between traditional and technological.
According to Rose Minutaglio for Popular Mechanics: "It's not uncommon for a robot to offer you a water bottle. In fact, in the main media center alone there are four different types of bots roaming the hallways, minding their own business unless you are in need of something. Lost? Mechanical guides got you covered. Spill something on the ground? A massive 'maid' bot continually cleans the halls.
The 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea are all about modern and efficient amenities, starting from the moment you touch down in the country and a brand-new 186-mph bullet train whisks you from Seoul's Incheon airport to Pyeongchang. That innovation extends to the spectator experience at the Games with the 85 robots milling the Games grounds. Here's a look at some of the best ones."
