WATCH: Here's your food, thanks to the flying robot

DRONE DELIVERY: Infinium Robotics CEO Woon Junyang, presents Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong with a flag delivered by a flying drone at the National Productivity Month event yesterday.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong was presented a Singapore Flag by a smart flying robot during the exhibition for National Productivity Month 2014 on Oct 7 at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The smart flying robot, or Flying Robotic Intelligent Servers (Fris), is created by Infinium Robotics, a Singapore company located both here and at Silicon Valley, California in the US.

The robots aim to increase the productivity of waiters in restaurants.

Infinium Robotics' CEO Woon Junyang said that the idea for the smart flying robots came about during his many dining experiences in restaurants here with his wife.
