A hotel staffed by ten multilingual robots is set to open later this year in Japan.
When the Henn-na Hotel opens in July, it will be run by robots that can greet guests before carrying their luggage to their rooms. When guests leave, the robots will be able to clear their rooms, ready for the next human to come and stay.
The robots are styled to look like a young Japanese woman. They can speak fluent Japanese, Chinese, Korean and English, and can respond to guests body language, eye contact and tone.

Well at least we won’t need as many Illegal aliens anymore.
“Well at least we wont need as many Illegal aliens anymore””
I’m sure that’s one of the major reasons the Japanese are developing personal robots. Their experiments in the 80s and 90s with Japanese-South Americans and with turning a blind eye to Asian illegals didn’t work out very well.
A copy of this story should be passed out with the headline in 24 point boldface type anytime there is a demonstration such as these -
“We” won’t need as many ‘American citizens’ anymore, either..
and “we” can be counted on to get rid of THEM, the American citizens, first... if only because they cause ‘us’ so damned much trouble, they keep mouthing off that they have ‘rights’ and they keep posting insults about ‘us’ on sites like this
and they want higher wages than ‘our’ favorite workers, the illegal aliens ‘we’re’ importing

Enter “comfort” robots, with 4-position selector switch: COOK-CLEAN-****-OFF.
No more tipping?
