Need Help Finding Hardware? This Robot Might Be Able to Help

Futuristic helper will debut in November at Orchard Supply

Robots are the future. That's what a lot of businesses are starting to bank on, and Lowe's is one of them.

Check out the impressive video below to get a look at the home improvement brand's new OSHbot, which will debut at Orchard Supply Hardware's San Jose, Calif., store in November. Lowe's purchased Orchard Supply during a Chapter 11 reorganization in 2013.

The 2.5-minute clip shows what the future of retail will look like, including a robot that can scan products and offers, lead customers to items in the store and connect them with employees to answer more complex questions (all while speaking multiple languages).
