In South Korea, Starbucks is proving that sometimes the best one for a job isn’t a human.

In fact, a small army of robots is a better option.

Only two humans are enough to make you the best coffee and to make sure these robots don’t start a coffee uprising!

As the two baristas prepare your order, these bots handle the delivery.

And their waitering skills are not to be doubted.

They deliver the order perfectly, even if it’s to someone sitting far away in a room.

The bots in the video are crafted by Naver Labs, a South Korean company.

These robots can be seen roaming freely at the headquarters of the South Korean technology firm, showing off their skills where they were created.

If this Starbucks with 100 robots amazes you, think about Amazon warehouses where the total robot fleet was recently increased to 750,000.

To keep an eye on these Naver robots, a special software tracks and monitors each one of them, ensuring they’re always on the right path.

And did you notice the robot at the end of the video?

It looks like the robot is truly vibing, having the time of its life serving coffee to customers.

Robots can be truly amazing, just like the Tesla Optimus robot folding clothes.

Now let’s talk a bit about the brain behind these advanced machines serving coffee.

Naver, the parent company behind these robots, is a major player in technology and innovation in South Korea.

Known primarily for its search engine, Naver has expanded into various tech sectors, including AI and robotics.

You must have heard about LINE, a popular messaging app used by millions of people worldwide. Naver is the company behind it.

It’s brands like Naver, Tesla, and Engineered Arts, the one behind the world’s most advanced robot called Ameca, that are truly leading us into the future.
