Now that we're in the year 2022, we're realizing that pop culture prepared us for a future where we would encounter way more robots than actually exist in real life. Aside from the self checkout at the grocery store, life isn't quite as much like The Jetsons as we'd hoped... but maybe that's all about to change?
There's a hotel in San Francisco that's using robots to deliver room service orders, and we can't decide if this is cool or a bit weird. Traveler @iamemmawallace shared what happened when the food she ordered arrived, and we're kind of mind blown that something like this actually exists.
"I'm in San Francisco and a robot came and delivered my Taco Bell to my room, did a little dance when I rated it five stars, the went back down in the lifts. London could never," she shared.
From the video, we can see that the robot had a little basket that opened and contained her food with instructions for what to do on a display screen on the top. And yes, the little dance it did when it was done providing the service was very cute. We could get used to these!
We're not the only ones who feel that way. One person commented, "if these are the robots that are gonna take over the world they can have it, they've already taken over my heart."
It'll be interesting to see if these robots start popping up in more hotels. We need to experience this for ourselves!
