The BBC reports on the news that robots have taken up the positions of the waiters at a restaurant in China. The robots are presumably designed to replace human waiters and use optical sensors alongside rechargeable batteries to get around.

The restaurant owner says that he’ll save money in the long run, despite their $10,000 cost. He also told the BBC that they provide entertainment for guests to his restaurant, something else the machines have over us humans apparently. The bots have been the subject of great interest in China, surprising since they are set to become something of a norm. The video included bellow is from one of many of these restaurants, that particular one opened in August.

As the BBC report points out, there is one big advantage to this – no embarrassing stares from waiters who haven’t received a tip.
