No doubt won't be long until it hits the USA. The next revolution at the workplace is coming soon! Images below:

  • Henn na Hotel - operated primarily by Robots at least from what we can see front-of-the-house and very entertaining.
  • Pepper, the humanoid robot by Softbank interacting with shoppers at Mitsukoshi Department store
  • Yaskawa - Robot that takes orders and makes soft serve ice-cream at Huis Ten Bosch theme park.
