Robot Restaurant in Eastern China.

Located in Kunshan, eastern China, the restaurant relies on over a dozen machines for tasks such as greeting customers, waiting on tables and cooking basic meals. The eatery becomes the third café in the world to rely on the use of robot employees, potentially giving a glimpse into how future businesses could operate. Speaking to a local newspaper, owner Song Jugang explained that the robots cost around £4000 (≈6600 USD) (1876 KWD) – the same as the yearly pay for a human employee. There are drawbacks to using the robots which is why Mr Jugang still relies on humans, hiring a handful to work in the kitchen and cook dishes too complex for their mechanical countrparts. The futuristic machines have a limited vocabulary and take two hours to charge enough to complete a five hour shift but give an insight into how far robot technology has come.

Breathtaking Images of Icelandic Volcano Rivers.

These pictures look like an artist has painted abstract patterns on canvas – but in fact they are natural rivers captured on camera. The spectacular rivers in Iceland’s central highlands and southern parts originate from glaciers, which is why the water is a milky colour. They are shallow rivers and the water spreads quickly over a flat and sandy surface, creating random and beautiful patterns. Photographer Andrey Ermolaev from Moscow, Russia, flew 500ft above the unique sight in a small plane.
