Robot Waitress – WIRED ItalyMay 1, 2020 1:45 pm
Back in February, on assignment for WIRED Italy , I spent an evening photographing a robot that serves sushi. I got the sense that it was more of a gimmick than a way of increasing productivity, and the humans working that night didn’t seem worried that “she” (🙄) would be taking their jobs any time soon.
This story was part of an issue about the future of work. I also shot a story about a call center, the Ferarri factory, and an esports bar where kids make money playing video games.
Many thanks to Photo Editor Francesca Morosini, creative direction from Pitis e Associati, Producer Elena Lotto, and Assistant Umberto Pettazzoni.
You make that robot look so pretty, Reed!
I could see the robot with the 4 backgrounds as a collection that people would like to hang on their wall.
(…and by “people”, I mean “me”…)
