This place seems far-fetched. I’m still not sure if I believe it exists. Then again there’s a video below, and they have a Facebook page too. Located in the Kabukicho district in Tokyo, the restaurant whose tagline is “Welcome to Japan! Let’s go RobotSHOW!” combines animatronic puppets, cosplay- and costume-enhanced theatrics, Blue Man Group-esque drummers, dancers & performers covered in wearable electronics, and numerous floats, vehicles & contraptions into a compressed space that mimics medieval ‘dinner & tournament’ restaurant experiences. The entire facility is entirely covered in electronics and bedazzling ornamentation – here are just a few screenshots from the video at the end:

One thing is for certain: they stepped up the game compared to 1980s California disco-blasting waiter-bots. Watch:

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
