Japanese Cafe Uses Robots Controlled By Paralysed People by Techcribsblog(m): 11:50am On Dec 07
A cafe staffed by robot waiters controlled remotely by paralysed people has opened in Tokyo, Japan.

A total of 10 people with a variety of conditions that restrict their movement have helped control robots in the Dawn Ver cafe.

The robot's controllers earned 1,000 yen (£7) per hour - the standard rate of pay for waiting staff in Japan.

It is hoped the project will give more independence to people with disabilities.

The OriHime-D robots used in the cafe were developed by Japanese start-up Ory and were originally created to be used in the homes of people with disabilities that severely restrict their movement.

The robots can be told to move, observe, talk to customers and carry objects, even if their operator can only move their eyes. These abilities have been adapted for use in the cafe.

The pilot scheme aims to test connections between disabled people and the robots, to help people who might otherwise be housebound earn a wage and interact with other people more easily.

Japan has always led the word when it comes to technology and robotics.
I remember their documentaries on NTA 2 channel 5 in the early 2000s on technology and innovation, it was always ahead of their time e.g a laser that finely peels potatoes, apples etc

Thumbs up Japan

The real land of the rising sun wink
