In fact, from the technologies that were displayed at the Emirates Headquarters, a robotic arm brought quite a bit of attention to itself. This robotic arm turns 90° to vacuum and steam aeroplane seats. And now, new iterations of this robot might be able to do much more, as the innovators are wanting to make it able to pull out trays and even clean it! It would truly be a futuristic experience travelling in flights where robots not just steamed and cleaned the seats but also checked the seat pockets to ensure the passengers didn’t leave behind anything.

Another tech company, called Popld, has developed a technology that can allow people to pay for their things with just their faces! This would require a one-time registration action and then people will be able to pay for any transaction with their faces! Besides this, there was also a robot skin that responded to the touch of a feather. On display, this technology had been developed by the Technical University of Munich and intouch robotics. As it happens, it’s a way for the robots to be able to work alongside humans in a variety of fields.

So, with so many exciting technological displays, people were truly left astounded by these insanely offbeat showcases.
