In surprising news, the world's first hotel staffed by robots opened last month. In unsurprising news, it opened in Japan. The Henn-na Hotel in the Huis Ten Bosch amusement park in Nagasaki was designed to be as efficient as humanly (or mechanically) possible.
The hotel assumed the logical response wasn't to set up a few tablet stations and be done with it—they decided to teach some robots how to do a plethora of gigs around the building. Let's just hope that every robot movie we've ever seen doesn't turn out to be realistic, or we'll be the ones taking coats and orders once Judgment Day comes.
