TOKYO – Meet Sawyer the robot.
While he’s not good at small talk – he can brew a mean cup of joe.
He’s the new barista at Japan’s first robot cafe – where everything is automated.
Customers at Henn-na Cafe, meaning “Strange Cafe” in Japanese, have to scan a QR code bought from a vending machine in order to buy a US$3 (S$3.93) coffee.
Unlike his human counterparts, Sawyer is programmed to be more productive, serving a maximum of five cups of coffee at a time.
