- Once you're done checking in, an industrial robot similar to the one found in Yotel New York will stash your luggage. The remaining robots in the staff list, on the other hand, will take care of your other needs, such as making your coffee, cleaning your room or delivering your laundry, among many other tasks.
- Other than the robots themselves, the hotel's high-tech features include the use of facial recognition tech to open guest rooms, a system that detects body heat to auto-adjust room temperatures and the use of tablets to call for room service.
- Those who prefer to interact with human hotel staff will be glad to know Henn-na will open with 10 employees made of flesh and blood. Its developers are hoping that machines can run 90 percent of the hotel's operations in the future, though. They also want to build 1,000 similar hotels worldwide.
