Meet Riley the Book Robot


Have you been inside the Terry Salman Branch of the Vancouver Public Library located in the Hillcrest Centre next door to Nat Bailey Stadium? And if you have, have you met Riley the book eating/sorting robot? His job is fairly simple in that he eats the books that you put into his mouth and then sorts them but he is very cool.

Side note: The Hillcrest Centre was designed by Darryl Condon (of Hughes Condon Marler Architects) who was the speaker at this month’s Creative Mornings! His talk and the dialogue that followed were fantastic, stay tuned for the video of his presentation in the next few days. For now, check out his Q & A to learn a bit more about where he’s coming from.
