Will your next real estate agent a robot?
If you're looking to rent a place in San Francisco, you can now get a home tour from a tablet-carrying robot. The robot is controlled remotely by a licensed real estate agent, whose beaming face appears on the tablet.
The company bringing the rental game into the 21st century is Zenplace, a property management startup founded in 2016. CEO Rahul Mewawalla previously served as an advisor to late San Francisco mayor Ed Lee, where he dealt with the city's IoT and infrastructure technology.
