SEOUL -- South Korean tech giant Naver's test bed for cutting-edge technology went into full swing this month, with an office tower neighboring its headquarters bringing together employees and an army of robot helpers.

The building, called 1784, launched full operations earlier this month in Pangyo, a tech hub close to Seoul. Standing 28 floors high, it sports a silver exterior in contrast with Naver's home office tower, which is tinged in the company's trademark green.
