    Just getting set up for the $15 minimum wage. Then they will sell those things in the US.

    Cool idea.....but If that thing doesn’t store extra ketchup packs somewhere on it, it’s not worth the plastic it’s made of.

    What’s the point when 200,000,000 Chinese are actually making less than $5 a day. It’s probably more expensive to maintain that robot than it is to pay a Chinese person $5 a day.

    In China, when you rent a hotel room, a few minutes after entering the room, the phone rings and a cute female voice asks if you want a massage in your room. Chinese hotels are known for that. After you check in, someone at the desk tips off a massage girl as to which room to call.
