COMING UP:Share Opener Variant 2



>> Meet Sawyer the robot. While he's not good at small talk, he can brew a mean cup of Joe. And he's the new barista at Japan's first robot cafe, where everything is automated. Customer's at Henna Cafe, meaning Strange Cafe in Japanese, have to scan a QR code in order to buy $3 coffee.
Unlike his counterpart, Sawyer is programmed to be more productive, serving a maximum of five cups of coffee at a time.>>
> Robots help check guests in and clean the lobby at this hotel, which has become a famous tourist attraction. Sawyer will make his debut on Thursday, when Strange Cafe opens its doors to the public.
And the concept of using robots is not new in Tokyo.>>
