Fully automated restaurant gets previewed, no tipping required

I don’t know exactly why, but Germans have the reputation of having absolutely no sense of humor. Just ask Mark, our resident German contributor, he’ll tell you so. So if you’re planning to visit Germany during your next vacation and want to experience German gastronomy, don’t expect to get a smile from employees when going to the restaurant. However, if this really bothers you, you could always visit this cool automated Robo-Restaurant we’ve writen about in the past.

The last article we did only had a picture, but recently, a BBC news crew went to have a look at this unique concept and filmed the whole ordering process, from selecting what you want from the menu, to having your meal delivered to you via a rail system.

  1. There is a restaurant here in Kansas City that has been doing something similar for YEARS now. Only real differences are that orders are done via phone and delivery is brought out by overhead trains.

  3. Science fiction!

    Though actually, it isn't. There are many automated food delivery systems in the SF corpus, but they're either compact units that make the food and deliver it in one unit (Star Trek style) or restaurants with mobile robot waiters (as in Niven's Wunderland). A rail delivery system I don't recall ever reading about.

  6. This restaurant is actually not too far away from where I live (less than 100km away). I am going to go and test it soon.

    I often joke about the lack of humour in Germans but to be honest, it's getting better. Mostly it's a stereotype now. The German "humour" these days is an acquired taste. I've been trying for years to teach the British humour to Germans and failing badly.
