Yeah I saw that stars display in some pictures earlier today, pretty cool looking. Really nice shot too. The yellow and green one reminds me of the Dallas Stars hockey team, of which I am not a fan; so the whole display leaves just a little bit of a bad taste in my mouth. =)
Thanks for the post. I’ll make my monthly visit to Uniqlo this week. BTW, did you catch that yellow robot rolling around the store?
I did see it actually. I’m not sure I was particularly impressed; was there something special about it?
From the looks of it, the bot had some sort of connectivity when greeted politely. When I forced it to take a picture with me, it was displaying some other symbol (concentric circles). Perhaps arming itself?
In any case, I wonder if the bot is a result of getting rid of employees that greet customers at the door with a more non-intrusive approach.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
