Pepper uses its ‘emotional engine’ and a cloud-based artificial intelligence system to analyse human gestures, voice tones and expressions, enabling it to read our emotions more effectively than the majority of its contemporaries. Pepper doesn’t take up much space, standing at only 58 centimetres (23 inches) tall but doesn’t lack in intelligence, speaking 19 languages fluently. 1,000 units of this humanoid sold within a minute of it going on sale, which shows that there is some serious demand for this type of household robot.
