Can you imagine going to a restaurant and being served by a flying robot? Reality might surpass your imagination if you travel to Singapore by the end of next year.

Infinium-Serve, the company behind the autonomous flying robotic waiters, specializes in providing autonomous robotic solutions for commercial applications across various industries. The futuristic flying robotic waiters will be first launched at one of Timbre Group’s five outlets in Singapore in late 2015.

“Introducing this technology into restaurants would take away mundane tasks of serving food and drinks,” said Infinium Robotics CEO Woon Junyang to several media outlets. “It will allow human waiters to focus on higher-value tasks such as getting feedback from customers,” he said.

A welcome-to-the future type of demo showcasing Infinium-Serve in action was presented to Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the launch of the National Productivity Month in October.

“This will result in an enhanced dining experience, which will eventually lead to increased sales and revenue for the restaurants,” Junyang said.
