Futuristic Japanese hotel will be run mostly by robots
If there's one thing that seems to be true about life in the 21st century, it's that robots are on the rise. We've even started taking pictures with something that looks exactly like a robot's arm. But one hotel in Nagasaki, Japan will be taking this trend to the extreme by using 10 robots as featured employees.
The resort is called the Henn-na Hotel and will feature 72 rooms and 10 humanoid robot employees capable of carrying luggage, checking in guests, and cleaning rooms, not to mention talking and blinking. There will be humans on staff, but the robots will be expected to do roughly 90 percent of the daily work at the hotel.
The Henn-na Hotel is slated for a July 2015 open date, and I'm totally curious to see how the general public reacts to the futuristic robot staff.
