At the 2015 North American International Auto Show, Volkswagen replaced its female booth babes with an iPad-powered droid that was used to interact with show attendees, reports psfk. The robot replacement moved like a Segway and had an iPad that communicated with those who approached it.

The remote-controlled droid roamed the show floor around the German car maker's exhibit and had the ability to both see and talk to people. The iPad also provided a touchscreen interface that allowed visitors to learn more about Volkswagen automobiles.

You can check out the Volkswagen droid and the crowd's curious reaction in the Vimeo video below.
