Guests checking into a new hotel close to the Japanese city of Nagasaki this summer may find themselves complaining that the service is just a little …. robotic.

With due cause. In a paradigm-shifting development, the hotel in question, the Henn-na Hotel, will be partially staffed by what are termed “actroid” androids – remarkably human-like robots who will be able to greet, carry luggage to rooms, make cups of coffee – and even smile.

 

The 72-room hotel is scheduled to open on July 17, 2015. Read more on The Telegraph, or check out the press release.
