This Japanese Hotel is Staffed by Robot Dinosaurs

"The Henn na chain - whose name means 'weird' - bills itself as offering the world's first hotels with mechanical staff and operates sites in Nagasaki and east of Tokyo. The reception at Hotel Maihama, the Henn na Hotel east of Tokyo, is eerily quiet until customers approach the robot dinosaurs manning the front desk. Their sensors detect the motion and they bellow 'Welcome.'  Each room is staffed with mini-robots that look a bit like spherical Star Wars droid BB-8, and help guests with everything from changing channels to playing music. Even the garbage cans are automated and the fish swimming in the lobby run on batteries."
