Robot Waiters Remote-Piloted By Paralyzed People

If this sounds like the plot of a movie that would be because it was...several times.

Dawn ver.β is a Tokyo cafe in Akasaka where all the table service is performed by 120 cm tall OriHime-D robots that are piloted by people who are paralyzed and work from home; it was inspired by a fictional cafe in the 2008 anime Time of Eve.
