In robot news, one Shanghai-based branch of China Construction Bank is now being hailed as the first ‘unmanned bank’ in China. So if you’re curious about what exactly a so-called unmanned bank looks like… and how it differs from an ATM, just head on down to the China Construction Bank on Jiujiang Lu (near People's Square and The Bund). 

There you will be greeted not by humans, but by a cute robot. But this isn’t just any robot, the robot is the Bank Lobby Manager. So if you have any questions, just ask the manager.

The bank is equipped not only with a robot manager, but also with video teller machines and other services that employ augmented reality and virtual reality technology. (And no, we have no idea what these services are.) 

With the robot manager and high-tech services, the bank claims to be able to handle 90 percent of services provided at an average bank. 

However, with all this talk of being ‘unmanned’ there are still actual humans working in the bank.
