    A high-tech hotel opening in Japan will be
    staffed by multilingual robots

    This summer 2015, a hotel will open in
    the Netherlands-themed Huis Ten Bosch
    amusement park in Nagasaki, Japan.

    It will have 72 rooms.

    Room fees will start at $60 per night.

    And it will be staffed by 10 humanoid


    The Henn-na Hotel's blinking and "breathing"
    actroids will be able to make eye contact
    respond to body language, and speak fluent

    chinese, Japanese, Korean, and English.

    The robot staff will be supplemented with
    a human staff ... for now.

    At a news conference in Japan, Huis Ten Bosch
    president Hideo Sawada said, " In the future

    we’d like to have more than 90 percent
    of hotel services operated by robots."

    The actroids aren't the only futuristic thing
    about the Henn-na.

    Guests will be able to unlock their rooms through
    facial recognition software and radiation panels
    capable of detecting body heat will monitor
    and adjust room temperatures.

    This isn't just some futuristic fever dream, the
    hotel is scheduled to open on July 17th, 2015.

    I prefer one with humans, and ideally with Japanese girls, preferably without clothes :D

    Maybe there will be some kind of "sexdroids" sometime in the future (like they have in many science fiction movies like e.g. A.I.). ;)

    Even so, I still prefer to use my hand instead of that robot :D Human or nothing ;)
