A new hotel in Hawaii is being built using giant robots and is being hailed as the first “home” for robots in the state.
The hotel is being designed by hotel chain, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, and will be the world’s first robot hotel.
“Hawaii’s hospitality industry is booming,” said Hilton CEO Bob Dunn, who is also the executive vice president of the Hawaii Association of Realtors.
Hilton Hotels is a subsidiary of Hilton Worldwide Holdings.
The hotel will be built in a former Hawaiian Airlines hangar, where it will be operated by a company called Kuka.
Kuka is a division of IBM, which is building robots to assist people who are being treated for cancer or other diseases.
There are about 500 robots in use around the world.
Most of them are used for the assembly of products, like the robots that assemble the iPhones that are used in many Apple products.
It’s been a challenge getting these robots to perform tasks humans can’t, Dunn said, but he was optimistic about the future.
When it comes to robots, “you need to have a strong human to work with them,” Dunn said.
“If they can learn and be able to perform the tasks humans have been doing for thousands of years, then we will have a robot that can do them.”
The robots that will be used at the Hilton hotel will have the ability to move around, sit down, and climb.
They will be able see in the dark and hear in the night.
The building is expected to open in 2019.
