China's Space Capsule Hotel Has Robot Staff

It's not staffed entirely by robots, mind you. There are earthlings on duty, too!

Recently, a "space-themed" capsule hotel has opened in Shenzhen, China, reports website The Nanfang Insider. The hotel has a groovy 2001 vibe going on:

There's a robot doorman, it seems, and a waiter bot to bring you the drinks you order from a touch screen tablet. Pretty neat! There seems to be a person working the front desk—among, most likely, many other jobs.

Here are the capsules where guests sleep as well as the bathrooms and the laundry.
