The Future Is Here: New Automated Sushi Restaurant Requires Absolutely No Human Interaction
Finally, you can go to a nice restaurant and order, eat and pay for your food without the inconvenience of interacting with humans.
The store will have a three-level delivery system, propelled by model trains, that delivers food directly from the kitchen to diners after they place their orders on an interactive tablet. Twenty-four installed tracks can serve up to 158 patrons at once. That’s right — the restaurant will handle large crowds without hostesses, waiters or bussers.
Genki Sushi was the first restaurant to use the conveyor belt sushi-serving system in 1968, which has since been adopted worldwide.
Watch this insane video of sushi whooshing back and forth on the conveyer belt at the new location:
The redundancy of humans has been a long time coming. In February, a Japanese hospitality company announced plans to open a hotel run entirely by robots.
