#WeirdNews: Chinese tycoon gets robot maids to carry his shopping


Robot Maids

A Chinese tycoon brought eight robot maids on a shopping trip.

The wealthy businessman was photographed in a shopping mall while the robot servants patiently waited for him before following him out of the stores holding his bags.

Heads turned as the human-like machines gave the man help in a mall in Guangzhou, China.

Photographs showed the robots carrying a selection of designer shopping bags, water, a coat and a towel.

The mechanical maids could be seen waiting patiently for the man while he shopped for gold in a jewellery store before following behind him when he left.

The unnamed tycoon has been blasted by the Chinese media, and described as a “tuhao” which is a slang word to describe someone who “got rich overnight but has no taste”.
