Lovable whirling robot moves slowly guiding you at floor of crowded department store in Tokyo.  If you ask Siriusbot what you are looking for, the robot will show you tenants where you can find the goods, and if the shop is located on the same floor, it will guide you there. Optimized to crowded environment, it moves sheepishly to avoid collision, rotating its round shape, which nicely attracts visitors.
