Japan seems to always be on the forefront of innovation, even if it tends to be on the weird side. At the Henn-na Hotel in Nagasaki, technology and the bizarre collide in glorious fashion. The Henn-na Hotel is a fully-working vacation destination staffed almost entirely by robots. These aren’t just any robots. If you are lucky enough to spend the night, you’ll be checked in by a talking velociraptor at the front desk. You’ll even receive hot dinners from one of the many vending machines inside the property.
Are these robot hotels the future of the hospitality industry? It has advantages, but as many of the people who stay there admit, there is something missing. No velociraptor robot can replace the warmth and fulfillment of human interaction. Will the Henn-na Hotel be the future of the hotel industry or is it just an expensive gimmick? Let us know in the comments.
