A new robot cafe has opened in the Japanese capital, Tokyo. Customers can enjoy talking to and watching a small entertaining humanoid robot.

Robi is only thirty-five centimeters tall and weighs just one kilogram. But the toy robot can dance and talk and it is the host of a new pop-up café.

The cafe is located in a prestigious Tokyo shopping center and offers food and drinks decorated with images of robots. There are other restaurants in Japan that have robot waiters and chefs.

But Robi is different in that it plays the role of an entertainer. For the time being, he leaves waiting duties and cooking to his human assistants!
