Rent a luxury apartment in Beverly Hills for £20,000 a month to access a robot butler

2 Mins

Apple’s latest innovation – a £250 book – wasn’t up to it’s usual standards, so perhaps you’d be better off paying the difference for a luxury apartment that comes with robot butler.

The high-end abodes located in Beverly Hills are operated by Crescent Heights and will cost £20,000 a month, but you’ll have technologically advanced electronic valets, the Daily Mail reports, included within the fee.

Sold.

Of course, if you’re looking for a slightly cheaper robot, one that’s fun for all the family, you may remember the ASUS Zenbo for $600.

The 40-storey tower, known as Ten Thousand, that can be found in the wealthy LA spot also comes complete with other treats for luxury apartment renters, including gym, swimming pool and pet spa.

Robotics firm Savioke is behind the development of the robot butler. “We are committed to measurably improving people’s lives by creating and deploying beautifully simple yet sophisticated delivery robots that work safely, securely, and reliably in human environments,” said the firm.

Its line of robots is known as the Savioke Relay. Each one is said to drive productivity and revenue growth, as well as “delight to people in a range of industries and organisations”.

Residents can expect everything from drinks to food to parcels delivered to their luxury apartment. The butler is able to operate lifts independently, while bespoke iPads will be provided to customers so they can order items they want sent up to their rooms.

Crescent Heights VP Roman Speron said the firm is an “innovator in high-rise residential technology” and claimed Ten Thousand is setting the pace for what can be expected in the future.

“People rely on technology more than ever to simplify their lives, but often technology can prove challenging for residents,” he said.

“We have simplified the process so that residents can enjoy more leisure time, from having a parcel that just arrived to getting a morning latte delivered via robot to their front door.”

And in the event that anything does go wrong, residents are able to call the in-house team department for support, restoring order to the luxury apartment once more.
