76 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I OCTOBER 2020 densities. My guess is that the design function is going to be subsumed by the system-level packaging and substrate people rather than the PCB industry. Holden: We don't have a roadmap, but it is also important to emphasize the other end of the spectrum. I believe in disposable electronics and printed electronics, such as a wristband that you can throw away when you're done using it. It would be made out of paper but designed with a five-cent chip to communicate with my smartphone and collect the informa- tion my doctor wants. Then it would upload data to AI that makes conclusions and tells my doctor to give me a call to come in if it doesn't like what it's seeing. Wesling: It's printed roll to roll and extremely cheap, almost like a newspaper. Holden: That's where some of our people in PCB manufacturing or flex will decide to invest in that part of the developing market. Johnson: Thank you for your time, Paul. I hope you had a great time. Wesling: This has been fun. SMT007 Bear Robotics and SoftBank Robotics Group have col- laborated to bring a new robot named Servi to the food service and hospitality field. This strategic partnership has brought together Bear Robot- ics' unrivaled robotics technology and SoftBank Robotics Group's vast experience in developing and commercializing service robots. Working together has allowed both companies to meet skyrock- eting demand for these autono- mous indoor robots in restaurants and other dining venues. Servi has been developed to be a new member of the food service workforce to assist staff and elevate the overall customer experience. Servi's agility and object detection put its safety in a class of its own. This has resulted in significant interest in from the hospitality mar- ket in Japan, Korea, and the United States. Servi comes with additional features like bussing, drink deliv- ery, and patrol mode. This will allow restaurant and dining hall owners to maximize their operating efficiency, while also elevating service quality to customers.
