The end for work experience staff?

Japanese conglomerate Hitachi has someone it would like you to meet. EMIEW 2.

The little red and white chap (no it isn’t Santa), who is a robotic office assistant, has recently undergone a series of upgrades. 
It can now identify objects by taking a picture and then searching online for similar looking results. Also, thanks to a network of cameras that are placed throughout the office, EMIEW 2 can locate spefic objects and take you to them. No more misplacing the paper-clips then. 
Downtime has one question. Can it make a good cup of tea? If it can then students looking for work experience could soon be in trouble.
