One of the poorest countries in the world presented its first young robots – 11/15/2018


"Enjoy your meal"Ginger, the first of her kind in Nepal, says that her waitress will bring a plate of hot food to a surprise dining table with an elaborate treat.

This scene is better known in the impoverished country of the Himalayas with its high peaks rather than its technological superiority, but a group of self-educating young innovators has begun to change this idea.

Local name Paaila Technology was built from the ground up. Ginger speaks of a common content in English, Nepal.

The bilingual humanoid robot is 1.5 meters and not only can speak both English and Nepali, but can also make jokes from Apple's smart assistant, Siri, or Amazon.

Now three years ago, there are three Ginger working in the Naulo restaurant in Kathmandu, which has the streets and buildings that carry the traces of a powerful earthquake waving Nepal's capital Nepal.

Binay Raut, executive director of the company, told AFP, "This is our test area, we are fine tuning with the answers of our customers."

Raut, 27 years old, the youngest team of 25 young engineers, was working in a small office for months in the construction of the robot.

Everything that Nepal does not have technological infrastructure is provided with creativity. The polished plastic body of Ginger is thus painted in a nearby workshop.

Naulo opened its doors four months ago, and three robot officers have become a major attraction for customers of all ages.

Ginger that can catch up with movement and obstacles is passing through a dense restaurant with food-packed overflowing trays.

Customers place their orders on a touchscreen on the tables and call Ginger when the kitchen is ready for meals.

, It was a completely new experience, bir says Shalikram Sharma, who was born 73 years ago, even on Nepalese television.

Ginger has taken a picture of herself and sometimes she gets annoyed when the kids want to have a photo with her.

"I couldn't believe they were made in Nepal," says Neelam Kumar Bimali, a client who is eating family food.

When the world market is taken into consideration, Paila Technology is in the process of selling its design locally and abroad.
