Waiter Robots

On this blog I wrote here about the robot teachers in South Korea. Now a new invention has produced the waiter robots in a local restaurant in Eastern China, where they are responsible for waiting and entertaining the customers. They always serve with a smiley face, they never loose their temper (especially with demanding customers) and of course they never expect a tip. Whilst the customers eat their food they also enjoy the robot's dance, which dances to the rhythmical eastern background music.

The question is what do people prefer? A human who has his ups and downs or a neutral robot that merely repeats what it has been programmed to do. What happens when a special circumstance occurs? Then do they call for the human to resolve it? Modern Technology has achieved many things, however some technological inventions are unnecessary.
