It costs just $80 per night to stay there.
Step aside, receptionists. Robots are coming to get you.
At least, that's what's happening at a hotel in Japan. Called Weird
Hotel, the place of business uses robots in order to cut costs, according to
the Associated Press. The owner of the hotel, Hideo Sawada, says robots
are used to boost efficiency, too, and not as a gimmick to attract tourists.
Interestingly, the robots have been made to look like dinosaurs. "If you
want to check in, push one," it says in English. The visitor then needs to
enter their information into a touch screen. The hotel also makes use of
facial recognition technology to complete the check-in process and to help the
visitors replace their door keys. "I wanted to highlight innovation,"
according to Sawada when speaking with reporters who toured the hotel. "I
also wanted to do something about hotel prices going up. " It costs about
$80 per night to stay at the hotel. But robots don't totally run the
show. There are security cameras around the hotel that are monitored by
security officials to ensure guest safety. There's another important
reason, too: To make sure no one steals the robots. This article
