From the receptionist that does the check-in and check-out to the porter that’s a stand-on-wheels taking luggage up to the room, the hotel, that is run as part of Huis Ten Bosch amusement park, is “manned” almost totally by robots to save labor costs.

It’s Tech Tuesday! And as always, Bill and Wendy are joined on the phone by their tech-savvy pal, Bridget Carey! The Henn-na Hotel in Japan has decided to “fire” half of its robotic staff! Bridget explains the real reason why the hotel fired their robot workers. Plus, a new thing to creep you out about the Internet. People are getting harassed on dating sites by ex-lovers trying to torment them, and often there’s nothing you can do unless you change your number and address.
