After initially launching a couple of months ago, Eva the Robot Photographer has officially shot her first wedding. Using facial recognition technology, she is first able to recognize guests before asking if they would like their photo taken.
Despite photobooths long being a hit at weddings, a company spokesperson for servicerobots.com, the brains behind Eva, said people are starting to run tired of the more traditional booths: “They are looking for something new and memorable that will really make their event stand out. None of the guests at this wedding will ever forget their first encounter with a robot photographer.”
Guests can choose from many photography options and effects using the large interactive color screen. Once they have a snap they’re happy with, Eva can print it off instantly at a nearby photo-printing station or upload it straight to various social media platforms.
Naturally, she was a huge topic of conversation throughout the day. Gary, the groom, said:
This was a fantastic addition to our day, and our guests are still talking about it. Eva went down a treat and really got people involved. It made a nice change from the normal photo booths.
The company was clear to reiterate that Eva the Robot Photographer is intended for novelty purposes and not to replace a real human photographer. Certain technology may be hanging a big question mark over the future of professional photography, but it seems thankfully, Eva is not one of our competitors.
