Japanese cafe to be staffed by robot waiters

Recommended Posts

If the robots are being operated by people instead of replacing people (disabled or not) I'm all for the idea. Personally, I wouldn't mind working from home controlling a robot waiter, factory worker, construction worker, etc. Essentially getting paid to work from home playing a video game for 6-8 hours a day sounds pretty OK to me.

I wonder if the Military Industrial Complex will adopt such an idea for all future War Games ...

I will probably get those free bread sticks they never hand out and with a side order of end of the world magic.

Pretty much everyone gets some kind of job in Japan. In a weird way it's like the old communist countries where they created as many make-work jobs as necessary for there to be 100% employment.

I thought they already had such cafes? I saw one on Youtube the other day where the cafe owner programmed a industrial robot arm to deliver sushi to customers from the kitchen.

It's a great idea as long as the disabled earn enough to make a living and not just pay them peanuts to make a show out of it.  BTW - Who gets to keep the tips?   The robot or the operator?
