How do you promote your robot factory?  Simple, you open a noodle shop.  That’s what Japanese resident and entrepreneur Mr Nagoya did and now his robots server over 80 bowels of soup a day.

The robots can produce one bowel every 40 seconds and when the shop is slow the robots entertain customer by pretending to battle one in another in a sort of sword and shield battle.

Each bow of soup costs $7, so while popular the store is far from profitable due to the costs incurred due to research and development of the robot arms.
