Five robots took over a restaurant in Guiyang, China last April 16, 2016.
These robots replaced some of the restaurant servers and were claimed to be capable of taking certain orders and bring plates to the customer’s table.
In an interview with AVN/CCTV, the manager said that a single robot can do the work of two servers. However, these bots can move along certain paths, and can’t respond to customers’ requests.
In other news, there have been other Chinese restaurants who have experimented with robot servers, one even made a Chinese chain to close because of the incompetence of their robots to perform basic tasks.
