Robot Hotel to Open in Japan

Tired of discourteous hotel staff after a long day of travel? Well, if that trip takes you to the Henn-na Hotel in Nagasaki, Japan, you’re in luck!

On July 17th, the hotel will open with a staff of 10 robots, called “actoids”. Kokoro, a Japanese robotics company, will supply the robots. Kokoro says the robots will be able to check in guests, carry luggage, and clean rooms. They will also be able to respond to facial expressions and body language and will be fluent in Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and English.

Hideo Sawada, president of Huis Ten Bosch, a Netherlands-themed amusement park in Nagasaki, says the hotel will have a human staff supporting the robots, but wants robots to comprise 90% of the hotel’s staff soon.

The robots aren’t the only futuristic flings in the hotel: facial recognition software will allow hotels guests to enter their rooms without a room key. Also, radiation panels in the walls will monitor and adjust room temperatures based on body heat in the rooms.

Room fees start at just $60/night. Interested? Read more here!
