Tokyo robot cafe serves up jobs for people with disabilities

A trial for robots to serve customers at a café in Tokyo started.

Customers were welcomed and served by OriHime-D, a robot developed by Ory Lab Inc. a company promoting more work opportunities for those with difficulties working in public spaces.

Unusually, the robot servers are not powered by artificial intelligence.

Ten people, most with catering experience, signed up for the project to work behind the scenes.

They are paid 8.80 per hour, operating the robots, taking orders and conversing with customers.

Nozomi Murata has been suffering from a rare disease called, Autophagic vacuolar myopathy, and has been in a wheelchair since she gradually lost strength in her muscles.
