The Dalu Robot Restaurant, in Jinan, northern China’s Shandong Province, has a very special wait staff indeed. All of the waitresses (six in total) are robots that follow a fixed route that can serve up to 100 diners.
The robotic staff includes two robot receptionists, or hosts, and six robot waiters. With tables arranged in a circular arrangement, robots are bringing your dishes to the table by using a track to move around the restaurant.Each robot has a motion sensor that tells it to stop when someone is in its path so customers can reach for dishes they want.
As customers enter the dimly lit restaurant lined with blinking neon lights to simulate a futuristic environment, a female robot decorated with batting eyelashes greets people with an electronic ‘welcome’.
According to the state-run China Daily. Last year, there were 21 robots for every 10,000 workers in China, compared with a global average of 55. Japan has 339 robots for every 10,000 workers; Germany has 251.
