If you’re a fan of the Channel 4 series Humans, you may well be intrigued by the latest development in artificial intelligence: a hotel managed by robots.
The Henn-na Hotel (literally ‘strange hotel’) in Sasebo, Japan, has recently welcomed its first customers, who get to indulge in an experience entirely staffed by a crew of robots.
Guests can check in with the help of a dinosaur dressed like a concierge, access their rooms with face-recognition technology, and sit back while a range of robots, humanoid or otherwise, take care of the rest.
Watch how this unique hotel works below and tell us if you’ll be visiting.
