  • Softbank Robotics has announced it is working on a Tokyo cafe that will be run by its humanoid robot Pepper.
  • When SoftBank first offered 1,000 of its emotionally intelligent Pepper robots to the consumer market in 2015, the entire run sold out in under a minute.
  • Pepper was developed for SoftBank by Aldebaran, a French robotics company specialising in emotionally intelligent humanoids that can function in unstructured environments like homes, shops, and specialised care facilities.
