In another new chapter of artificial intelligences comes the restaurant that is served by robots. In the town of Harbin, China, there are robots that welcome, cook, serve and sing for the guests while they dine on the cuisine. Meals such as noodles, french fries, dumplings and rice dishes are served at the establishment.

In total there are 20 robots working at the restaurant. They were designed and built by a local firm, the Harbin Haohai Robot Company. Each robot cost about $31,500 – US$47,000. The restaurant robots have gained significant worldwide attention and have proven to be a brilliant marketing plan for the restaurant, whose meals only range from $10 and less. The customers, so far, are satisfied with the food and enjoy the experience.
