Siri and Apple’s Robot Liam Meet in an Earth Day Video

Siri and Apple’s Robot Liam Meet in an Earth Day Video

Apple rolled out a new promotional ad for Earth Day, which includes both the company robot Liam and the well-known Siri.

Liam, an industrial robot with 29 robotic arms, was introduced to the world a month ago and he is designed to disassemble damaged and returned iPhones.

The ad is one of Apple’s recent efforts to address the growing e-waste problem in the world. Wondering what happens when Siri meets Liam? Check out the video for yourself.

Mashable has the details:

Siri, meet Liam. But be careful not to rub the disassembly iPhone robot the wrong way. Apple has also put together a cute promotional ad for Earth Day that highlights both Liam and Siri meeting for the first time — something that doesn't go quite as planned.

The ad comes just a month after Apple unveiled a large-scale robot named Liam, a huge industrial robot with 29 freestanding robotic arms, at its iPhone SE press event. The company had secretly been working on Liam in a warehouse for years.
