“Strange” Robotic Hotel

The Henn na Hotel isn’t yet fully automated, but it’s getting there. “Henn na” is Japanese for “strange” and, well, that’s just what this hotel would appear to be. It’s part of an amusement park, but it’s designed to test out automation in the hotel industry. 

Sawada, who runs the hotel, is keeping the hotel half-filled for the first few weeks just to make sure nothing goes wrong. But what could go wrong? Especially with a velociraptor for a receptionist?
