Short on staff? Hire a robot!

Just read an article in the Japan Times about People Staff, a japanese temp agency, that rents out robots to do receptionist work.. So are we really at the beginning of robots entering our service industry? Interesting development.

People Staff plan the first year is to get 10 retail contracts. I guess they need a new name soon 😉

Humanoid robot Wakamaru shows off its communication skills Wednesday with an employee at the People Staff Co. office in Nagoya.
