Robot-like waitress serving in Chinese restaurant goes viral

Robotics is becoming increasingly common in the hospitality industry, with restaurants and cafes around the world integrating them into various processes such as serving, clearing, and food preparation. Recently, a video surfaced online showing a humanoid robot waitress serving customers at a Chinese hotpot restaurant. However, the story takes an unexpected turn.

Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that the “robot” waitress in the video is a real woman, skillfully imitating robotic movements while serving food to customers at the Chinese hotpot restaurant.

Opinions on this innovative concept varied widely: while some admired its creativity, others found it disturbing. There was also confusion over whether the waitress was a robot or a real woman. One user claimed: “This is a human! A robot would not need to mimic robot-like movements. The repeated back and forth movements are typical of the appearance of robots. With enough attention, this becomes clear.”

Another commenter noted, “I'd rather not have that around me while I'm eating.” A third observer noted, “That's actually a woman. She has gained popularity by luring customers into the restaurant by portraying herself as a humanoid robot.”

A fourth commenter chimed in, explaining, “She's a real woman who has studied robot movements. It's all for the entertainment of customers.”

Restaurants around the world are increasingly turning to robots to supplement their workforce, particularly for tasks such as serving meals to the table. These robots are designed to streamline manual processes traditionally performed by human staff, improving service efficiency and overall productivity.
