"How are you, today?"
"I'm doing fantastic "
Six types of high-tech robot were on display in Seoul's Dobong-gu District at Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony for the 'Seoul Robot and A.I. Museum.'
"The Seoul Robot and AI Museum is a place to show domestic and overseas technologies and glimpse at what the future might look like. We are looking forward to seeing people experience high-tech robots and help spread Seoul's science.
"It's not just humans at this groundbreaking ceremony special guests like this one are taking the lead."
This particular robot called "Robo3" was guiding distinguished guests to their designated seats.
Some robots were hosting the event alongside a human announcer.
And, others were a part of shoveling event to mark the occasion.
The new museum that will house the robots has a unique design.
The circular building looks like a massive spaceship.
And, each of its four floors provides a variety of science displays and educational programs for visitors.
For start-ups it's expected to be a place to exchange new ideas.
City officials say they are expecting to officially open the museum by July 2023.
