“Tokyo-based DAWN, or Diverse Avatar Working Network, is a cafe staffed by robots operated remotely by people with severe physical disabilities like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. The operators, referred to as “pilots,” can control the robots from home — from a wheelchair or bed — by mouse, tablet, or a gaze-controlled remote”.
