It writes !

Associated with the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in Orange stores, our robot KiOne has a new super power: writing.

The big plus of the Galaxy Note 9 is its stylus. What can be done with it is definitively what the robot must highlight.
Lidwine Martinot, our CTO, and the R & D team have developed some magic formulas: a hint of artificial intelligence for calibration, some style and curves and “voilà”, a robot  ready to show the Live Message, the screen sharing and the cropping.

Slovakia, Romania, Belgium, Poland, Luxembourg, Spain and France welcome in Orange stores these unique robots eager to share their Galaxy Note 9 experiences.
