It’s the technology era, but the robotics portion of that technology revolution is still controversial. Suddenly, robots have increasingly humanoid features, walk normally, and even fulfill complicated tasks such as hotel services. Some find this news to be exciting while others find it worrisome. Just this year, The Henn Na Hotel in Japan opened its doors to the public, and introduced its staff of robots to the world. It has been judged by many as an impressive accomplishment, but others still see it as an eerily surreal oddity.

Humanoid robots are a big deal now in the robotics field, because they are robots that are capable of accurately doing everyday human tasks. This goes for the robotic hotel in Japan, The Henn Na Hotel, because there are robots manufacturing and working in the hotel while doing things that humans who work in hotels normally do. PPMH Crocs seem to like the trend. Sophomore Mary Galan states, “I think it’s something that benefits the world because it’s technology that’s developing.” Isabella Fernandez adds, “I also think that even though those ideas might scare people, they’re still part of something that’s going to help the world.” Both agree that robots are just another step in inspiring technological progress. That is also why these two students join many others in the school’s Robotics Club!
