Robot dog greeting guests at Wynn Las Vegas

Updated November 6, 2020 - 5:15 pm

Wynn Las Vegas’ theaters remain empty, but the property is offering guests a new source of entertainment: a robotic, fashion-forward dog.

The hotel-casino recently introduced guests to its Fashion Hound, a robotic dog the company described in a Thursday tweet as the “latest addition to socially distanced, mechanized entertainment at Wynn.”

A four-legged robot with a cheerful digital face, the Fashion Hound can give fashion advice and tell jokes, according to the tweet.

Guests could find the machine being tested at the Wynn Plaza, according to Wynn spokeswoman Deanna Pettit-Irestone. She said the company is “evaluating what elements to add, based on positive guest response,” and said the dog may be brought out again for more tests “in the future.”
