Pepper the Robot to Work at Pizza Hut

by Conner Flynn

SoftBank’s Pepper robot is growing up. After working at smartphone stores, it’s ready for a new career in the fast food industry. Pizza Hut Asia is partnering with MasterCard on a trial run that will use Pepper for taking orders and information in restaurants by the end of 2016.

Once you pair your MasterPass account, you can pay for your meal, and even ask the robot about the calorie count, if you like talking to robots. It’s quicker to order directly from your phone, but enjoy it for the gimmick that it is. Pepper should help to take some of the work load off of Pizza Hut’s staff, while creeping out customers. As you can see by the demo below, it’s already a master at moving cheesecake inventory.

At least it won’t be making your pizza, thank God. I can’t imagine that would not end well.
