Hi everyone, How ya’ll doing lately?  I was away vacationing in America, I went to places such as San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Anchorage and Fairbanks. It was one of the best trips ever, I had a lot of fun. Btw, you can see my travel vlogs on my youtube channel “manihabarry.”  So, back to the topic. I saw this amazing robot called “Pepper” in America and trust me, it was a super interesting and fun robot. 

What is Pepper?

Pepper is a human-shaped robot. He is entertaining and interesting and as well as a fun robot. I spent like 10 minutes with it and I wanted it so badly, lol. Pepper is designed to be a day-to-day companion and its number 1 quality is to trail emotions. It is the first humanoid robot which is capable of recognizing the principle of human emotions and adapting his behavior to the mood of his interlocutor. I asked it to pose and take a selfie with me, it did. It agreed to dance with me too. It was fun. Pepper wants to learn more and more about you everyday. He can recognize your face, speak, hear you and move around autonomously. You can also personalize your robot by downloading software applications that take your fancy, based on your mood or the occasion. 

More than 140 SoftBank mobile stores in japan are using pepper as a new way of welcoming people which amuses the customers. He is also adopted  in many Japanese homes. Pepper is currently on sale only in Japan, he is yet to come in other countries. Pepper is currently for $1,931 at SoftBank Mobile stores in Japan. I wish I could have pepper 😀 I saw it in San francisco Westfield Mall.

Below is a small clip of me playing with pepper.
