Japanese Cafe Uses Robots Controlled by Paralysed People - BBC

Excerpt from BBC

A cafe staffed by robot waiters controlled remotely by paralysed people has opened in Tokyo, Japan.

A total of 10 people with a variety of conditions that restrict their movement have helped control robots in the Dawn Ver cafe.

The robot's controllers earned 1,000 yen (£7) per hour - the standard rate of pay for waiting staff in Japan.

It is hoped the project will give more independence to people with disabilities.

The OriHime-D robots used in the cafe were developed by Japanese start-up Ory and were originally created to be used in the homes of people with disabilities that severely restrict their movement.
