Restaurants in the Phoenix area use robots as servers. So how does it work ? The Phoenix New Times explains the growth in the number of restaurants around the world using robots as servers: “Cute, talking, rolling
automated servers also help with marketing, mass media, social media, and even old-fashioned word-of-mouth. The Phoenix-area robots have been a real hit, playing music and delivering water and soft drinks. But in China, the novelty is fading. Two restaurants in Guangzhou, China that became famous for using robotic waiters ended up closing.

They can probably stop at specific tables, and maybe turn around or smell when something’s been taken from them, but it seems to be pretty much that.” And given that a lot of the staffing issues in hotels are located in the kitchen, a robot with a knife and hot oil does not seem like a good idea.

1. In 1915, inventor Percy Terry of Los Angeles believed he had developed an ointment that would harden the skin so much that it would become bulletproof. He envisioned “an army of bulletproof men who could advance with immunity to anything other than cannons”. He decided to test the ointment on himself. After rubbing his skin with it for several weeks, he shot himself in the head. It turned out that he was not bulletproof. He died at County Hospital.

He claimed that the said company had a bizarre rule that employees had to swallow raw eggs if they didn’t receive enough orders within a set time frame or failed to meet management’s expectations.
