Are you ready for a robot to serve you coffee?
At a Dal.komm Coffee shop in Seoul, a robot takes your order through a mobile app or a touch screen and then makes fresh coffee. The robot can make up to 14 drinks at a time.
Choi Eun Jin thinks the process is fun and easy. The 30-year-old office worker said, “The area is crowded with office workers and local residents during lunchtime. So it’s good to have a robot like this … so you can get your coffee more easily.”
Coffee is just one of the many industries that use automated services in this technologically forward-thinking nation. Others include restaurants, food stores, banks and manufacturers. The development comes as many Koreans, especially the young, are struggling to find work.
