Toyota's DJ Robot leaves fame behind, becomes receptionist

It wasn't all that long ago that Toyota's "DJ Robot"
was sharing the stage with the rest of its robot bandmates at the 2005
Aichi World Expo, but it seems that "DJ" now chosen a slightly less
glamorous career path, with it soon set to start working for its parent
company as a receptionist. According to Pink Tentacle, the robot has
been working hard to improve its human interaction skills as of late,
and is ready to go on the job later this month, working alongside human
receptionists at Toyota's Kaikan Exhibition Hall. After that, it'll
apparently take up a more permanent position at Toyota's Nagoya office,
with other versions of the robot also planned to fill other positions.
