Japanese Hotel Says Hackers May Have Watched Guests Through Robots In Room

A chain of Japanese hotels is apologizing to their guests after they found out they might not have been alone in the room during their stay. It appears that each room is equipped with its very own robot and they're very hackable. That means pervs can remotely hack in and watch video footage of the room all day. The Henn Na Hotel is staffed by robots so guests can be checked in by humanoid or dinosaur reception bots before proceeding to their room.  Facial recognition software lets customers into their room and then a bedside robot will assist with other requirements. However, a security researcher tried to warn the company about the possibility, he heard nothing back so he made the hack known on Twitter. The company has apologized for any uneasiness.
