• The Dalu Robot in Jinan, China is apparently the first restaurant to feature droids as servers. Robots which resemble Star Wars droids circle the eatery carrying trays of food. Many of the customers enjoyed the concept, including Li Xiaomei, 35: “They have a better service attitude than humans. Humans can be temperamental or impatient, but they don’t feel tired, they just keep working and moving round and round the restaurant all night.” Sure, this is all well and good, but if this catches on, the droids will steal all the jobs from aspiring actors and actresses, then those poor souls will have to resort to porn, and we don’t want that, do we? Well, maybe we do a little bit, but still. [Yahoo!/AP]
