Here Comes Relay … the Robot
Categories: Trend , Marketing Ideas , Toiletries
You might recall back in September we told you about Relay, a 3 ft tall rolling robot that several hotels were beginning to test for the delivery of things like extra towels, toiletries, and so forth. Well, that robot, made by a company in Silicon Valley called Savioke, may be coming to a hotel near you. Savioke is rolling out the model to several hotels around the world where the robots will be tasked with delivering toothpaste and coffee to guests.
Apparently, the Relay fleet made quite an impression during the test run -- more than 11,000 deliveries last year, which added up to more than 70 marathons or 3,000 kilometers, according to TechCrunch.

Duck Island's inspiration comes from an island of the same name, which has long since disappeared, though in 1734, at the height of its international fame and sophistication, it was described as "a paradise in miniature."
Duck Island formed part of one of England's oldest Royal Parks, located in the heart of London, one of the world's most fashionable cities. In 1664, the King of England, Charles II, received a magnificent gift of pelicans from the Russian Ambassador, and chose Duck Island as their home. At the time, pelicans were one of the most exclusive and expensive presents imaginable. They are the inspiration behind Duck Island's pelican motif.
Berkshire Amenities Group has added the following Duck Island products to its bath and body collection:
