Japan will open world’s first hotel entirely operated by robots this summer

No need to tip the staff at this hotel.

Japan will open the first hotel that is entirely staffed by androids. The hotel will be named “Henn na,” which is Japanese for strange hotel.

The two-story hotel is set to open on July 17 and it will be situated at the Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Sasebo, Japan.

Robots at the hotel will provide porter service, room cleaning and front desk management. The creators of the hotel said the robots will reduce costs and ensure comfort.

    Tipping is not the custom in Japan.

    • Not even an Oil change?

    This is a great start. Now do we have robotic lawnmowers and crop-pickers yet?

    What is with japan and their obsession with robots and giant mutant lizards????

    Liberal western pundits love to criticize Japan for its refusal to accumulate immigrants. Now cheap labor can be accomplished without Mexicans et al.

    And the Japanese seem to be getting along fine without the blessings of Diversity.

    Japan has one of the lowest fertility rates in the world and one of the highest longevity rates in the world. Rather than increase fertility rates or immigration they are choosing to use robots as a form of population replacement. http://theweek.com/articles/453219/everything-need-know-about-japans-population-crisis
