The first ‘robot barista’ was introduced.
While there is a dispute that robots will soon take away humans’ jobs in a rapid pace, the first robot barista that makes and serves coffee is attracting great attention.
The robot, named ‘Gordon’, has been set up at a mall in San Francisco like a vending machine, and it can make 120 cups of coffee in an hour.
Henry Hu, the CEO of ‘Cafe X Technology’ that has created Gordon introduced, “Often times people wait in a long line just for a cup of coffee. But Gordon makes coffee in a very short period of time.”
‘Cafe X’ makes 8 kinds of coffee including regular coffee and espresso in an 8 oz. cup. Customers can also order on the mobile app.
