    In the lobby of the REMM hotel in Tokyo Akihabara there stands a little man dressed in white plastic’s and gazes at everybody who comes with a suitcase in hand through the door. It wobbles on the potential guests to welcome them and quacks a “Welcome!” to them (actually not only in Japanese but also in English).
    If they have not run away in panic until now, they then can ask Gemini, so the robot’s name, questions about the hotel or even popular landmarks in Tokyo. “Where is the reception?” is one of the 700 questions, which Gemini does know….more…
