For those who don’t know Pepper yet, we want to introduce you the first humanoid robot designed to live with humans. Pepper is specifically designed to be an emotional companion, thanks to a multi-modal algorithm, that allows it to detect an react to human emotions. He’s much more than a robot, he’s able to communicate with you through the most intuitive interface we know: voice, touch and emotions.

What does it mean? As the creator says, “at the risk of disappointing you, Pepper doesn’t clean, cook neither have super powers… Pepper is a social robot able to converse with you, recognize and react to your emotions, move and live autonomously”. But he can also be the perfect “device” to integrate the technology of your “smart house”, so you can talk to Pepper, instead of a door, the air conditioning or the television.

Created for SoftBank Mobile (one of the largest mobile phone operators in Japan), Pepper is already greeting and interacting with customers in stores.

Pepper’s goal is to learn and grow step-by-step so that one day he can be your companion at home.

What do you think about this kind of robots? Would you like to have one at home?
