Automated

Finally, you can go to a nice restaurant and order, eat and pay for your food without the inconvenience of interacting with humans.

The chain Genki Sushi has just opened Hong Kong’s first fully automated sushi restaurant, Enterprise Innovation reports.

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.

What’s next? Robots making sushi? Robots eating our sushi for us? Only time will tell.
