A robot thing is a mechanical or virtual artificial agent, usually an electro-mechanical machine that is guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry. It is programmed to do something that will be its main task from the beginning. Nowadays, robots are built to do some tasks that a normal person can do such as the one stated below.

Designed and manufactured by Cui Runquian, each Ultraman robot unit cost about $2,000 back in 2012, and many Chinese businessmen think that they’re the future of noodles restaurant. If their price produces sticker shock, compare that to the cost of a chef, which clocks in at about $4,700 a year! It will be a big boost for the owners. Not only are they saving restaurants in China money in wages, they can work rapidly and tirelessly for hours.

While the robot’s doing most of the work, the owner can attend to other things and take orders from customers. He can also check everything around the restaurant. Aside from being a true workaholic, the robot serves also as an attraction for the small food cart due to its look and the passion it has.
