NEW DELHI, Dec 17 — Hello. This robot will be your server today.
At the Robot Theme Restaurant in southern India, a team of rolling robots will bring your food and drinks right to your table.
They’ll even take away the dirty dishes.
While service robots are not new, some imaginative people are finding all kinds of new uses for them.
Robot restaurant co-founder Karthik Kannan said, “We tried out different theme restaurant designs and all that. Later on, we finally decided that we could do something different which is not there in India.
“That is when we decided on the robot theme restaurant where we could bring robots to actually bring the food. I have seen these in a lot of abroad countries. So that is when we decided okay, let’s, why not bring it to India.”
Inside the restaurant, customers order food using phone tablets at the table.
When the meal is ready, a robot delivers it on a tray.
Customers say the service is exciting.
A customer, Roopa, said, “We didn’t expect such quick delivery and all that. It is very quick and they are very interactive and we are enjoying along with the robots.”
With such a delightful service staff, photos and selfies, surely are also on the menu. — Reuters
