A nice pool, a great bar, and a robot with every room? That's the promise at a new California hotel. The Aloft Hotel in Cupertino says this is the future of room service. It might seem right out of the Jetsons, but if you forgot your toothbrush before checking into this hotel, or just want some water, a robot will deliver it to your room for you. Whatever you need is placed on the robot, your room number is programmed in and presto, it's at your door The designers say they were inspired by, you guessed it, R2D2!
