South Park Themed Escape The Room Is A Thing Now

Six years. That’s how long since Escape The Room was introduced to the world. If you haven’t gotten yourself into the game, perhaps this is a good time to do so (if you are in the U.S.) because, South Park-themed Escape The Room, South Park: Cartman’s Escape Room, is here.

They do look like the grass chowing insect of the suborder Caelifera, complete eyes, feelers and imposing, protruding metal legs. Not going to deny the fact.

Japan’s Robot-staffed Hotel “Fires” Robots, Employs Humans

Henn-na Hotel, a hotel chain in Japan that lauded as the first hotel in the world to be staffed largely by robots, made waves back in 2015.

The future is here, but nearly four years on, the robots over at Henn-na Hotel, if they had emotions, they would be feeling rather flabbergasted because, they are being replaced by humans.
