Robots Will Check You in at Newest Japanese Hotel
There's a hotel inside a theme park in Nagasaki, Japan, that hopes to eventually be 100-percent staffed with robots. Phase 1 is the check-in desk. A handful of animatronic androids fashioned to look like attractive Japanese women will greet you and check you in whether you speak Japanese, Chinese, Korean or English.
They are programmed with 18 gestures, including ones that are "cute and girlish" so you'll be charmed by the androids fleshed in silicone. One review say they just look like they had too much Botox, but after seeing one image my thoughts were turned to the robots at Disneyland.
Some are calling it creepy, but I think it sounds like fun.
Although... it does remind me a little bit of "WestWorld"
