The future is here! (Or is it the present?)
Pepper "can communicate through emotion, speech, or body language, and it's
equipped with both mics and proximity sensors," says Engadget.
Creater of Pepper, Softbank, states Pepper has, "superior joint technology to realize
graceful gestures, and emotion recognition that analyzes expressions and voice tones."
Pepper was presented to the world on June 5th, 2014, and it has been selling
since February of 2015.
Pepper was first shown in Japan, and has been used there
since February, but there have been plans to sell outside.
Pepper is being used in healthcare, travel, and insurance services.
She costs around $2,000.
