Video report from ITV Anglia's Russell Hookey.
Purpose built in the 1960s and 1970s, Milton Keynes has always embraced the future.
The town will soon be trialling driverless cars. But not content with kick starting a transport revolution, it's now home to the UK's first robot office assistant.
She's called Betty and she works alongside her human counterparts carrying out basic tasks to help them.
Like any recent appointment Betty the robot is still in her probation period, but so far she's fulfilled all expectations.
The development of Betty and her slightly less intelligent predecessor BOB has taken place at the University of Birmingham.
They're working in partnership on this project with Transport Systems Catapult in Milton Keynes, which already has expertise in driverless vehicle technology.
Currently, though, Betty does have her limitations - doors being one of them.
She may not be perfect, but she does raise the prospect of a workplace revolution.
