This month WIRED released a great feature about their news and opinion editor, Emily Dreyfuss, who took on life as a robot while she worked from home, and you can read all about Emily’s experiences since May 2015 here.

We’re fascinated by how well this is working at the WIRED offices, and it’s got us thinking – how would we feel about this style of “robotics” in our restaurants and hotels?

Imagine a waiter arriving to your table on wheels with a tablet device for a head, serving from a tray attached to their new robotic body. Does the human to robotics ratio balance out?

We’re interested to see the boundaries that will be pushed in workplaces of all kinds as automation and robotics earn their place.
