Henn na Hotel or "Strange" hotel in Sasebo in southwest Japan has placed robots in different places to meet the needs and interests of their clients. English-Japanese humanoid robot took the front Desk of the hotel, and next to him is speaking English, Dino-bot, for service of foreign tourists. Sawada, Hideo (Hideo Sawada), a hotel owner, believes that robots will help to increase the efficiency of the hotel.
But robots, this is not the only thing Mr. Sawada uses to improve efficiency. Many other kind of futuristic electronics used in hotel. For example, to get into the room you don't need a key card, instead, it uses facial recognition. What is a hotel without bags? Well, the hotel Henn-na Hotel has a traditional messenger, but instead it has a robot messenger. Boat for carrying Luggage will accompany you and will deliver your belongings to your room, and you won't need to tip.
