If you’re getting stressed about social distancing in Tokyo, Japanese fast food chain Mos Burger has the solution. Meet Orihime, a cute little portable robot that works behind the register to take your orders.

Created by Ory Labratory, Orihime comes equipped with an embedded camera, microphone and speaker, and is designed to be a remotely operated stand-in for a person. In other words, people can use Orihime to virtually attend events, classes or work when they’re otherwise unable to do so physically. 

For the first time, Orihime will make its grand appearance as a fast food restaurant worker at Mos Burger in Osaki, located on the second floor of Think Park Plaza in Shinagawa. Orihime will be dressed in a Mos Burger uniform, taking orders for a month starting on Monday July 27. Orihime’s work hours will be from 2pm to 6pm on weekdays, and it will be operated by two staff members based in Osaka and Hyogo prefectures respectively. So if you’d rather have your burger served by a robot, make sure to grab a late lunch or early dinner in Osaki.
