Bear Robotics has kept pace with the times and is building robots that act as a waiter.
Bear Robotics, through its press service, claims that its robots are designed to improve the efficiency of the restaurant business. Will it explode the hospitality market?
John Ha, the firm's CEO, formerly an Intel Scientist and CTO at Google, is dissatisfied with the performance of the workforce versus wages in the industry.
Growing up in a family of restaurateurs, John Ha independently opened, and after a while closed his own restaurant business.
Therefore, the founder of Bear Robotics knows very well that restaurant ownership is no easy task, given the investment, overhead and intense competition.
Investors seem to agree with the idea of robotization.
According to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, Bear Robotics has already set aside about $ 10.2 million from investors in its accounts. The estimated investment amount is $ 35.8 million.
The sum for a modern high-tech startup isn't that big, but it's a great start for a foodservice robot, whose test model "Penny" rotates like the Star Wars robot R2-D2, smoothly moving between the kitchen and customer tables .
