The next time you go out to eat R2D2 could be your waiter. Well robot waiters and waitresses may still be a few years away in America they are already being used in China. The Dalu Robot Restaurant in northern China has 6 robot waitresses and can cater up 100 dinners.

The 21 tables are set in circles and the robots follow a fixed route to serve diners in rotation. After serving, the robots return to the kitchen to refill their cart for the next round. Restaurant spokeswoman Wang Xianwei said that all of the waiting on tables was done by robots. – News.Com/au

I was relieved to discover that the food was still prepared by humans. I don’t think I would trust a robot cooking my meal even if it was the real R2D2. The company has already announced plans to improve on their robot work force:

“Next, we’ll develop robots which can climb stairs and help with kitchen chores like washing the dishes,” said spokesman Zhang Yongpei. – News.Com/au

Does this mean you don’t have to leave a tip?
