According to SoraNews24, for a brief period of time a small coffee shop opened in Tokyo where robotic waiters were controlled by paralyzed people. While paid standard wage, this also gave them the ability to feel independent.

Developed by Ory, a startup that specializes in robotics for disabled people, the OriHime-D is a 120 cm (4-foot) tall robot that can be operated remotely from a paralyzed person’s home.
