For reasons unbeknownst to me, Japan is basically a Mecca for robotics in terms of both creation and adoption. In the most recent example of this, a theme park by the name of Huis Ten Bosch has decided to open a hotel that will be staffed by robots. Known as Henn-na Hotel, the name translates as Strange Hotel.
The robot revolution may be gentler than we thought. We’re not sure if the robotic staff at a planned hotel in Japan will be tucking guests into their beds at night, but they’ll be performing plenty of other traditional hospitality tasks. Huis Ten Bosch, a theme park modeled after the Netherlands in Japan’s Nagasaki Prefecture, has announced plans to open a hotel with robot staff and other advanced technologies. The hotel will be called Henn-na Hotel, which translates as Strange Hotel. According to the park, the first phrase of the two-story hotel will open on July 17 with 72 rooms. The second phrase will be completed in 2016 with an additional 72 rooms.
