Ory Laboratory

Avatar Robot Cafe DAWN ver.β

At Avatar Robot Cafe DAWN, people with disabilities remotely controlled robot avatars – such as Orihime, which is controlled by via eye tracker – to wait on tables. The cafe opened for three weeks in Tokyo to create more employment opportunities for people with disabilities. The project was covered in more than 500 articles, with media exposure worth 7.6m USD. Most importantly, more than five handicapped people who participated were successfully hired by a company after the project.
