Pepper Robot Takes Coffee Orders, Too Lazy to Serve It

by Conner Flynn

Robots are starting to pop up in a variety of places – especially in Japan. This SoftBank Pepper humanoid robot working at one of the company’s smartphone stores, and offers a customer coffee while she waits. Awww. Isn’t enslavement cute?

Honestly, I’m not sure what the point is here because the robot doesn’t actually serve her the coffee. It doesn’t really do anything except run it’s mouth the entire time and makes me want to punch it. I guess it tells the coffee machine what to make, but the lady still has to do all of the work while this useless robot just watches. Nice move, Softbank. Maybe next you can invent a robot that will actually perform the requested task.

At least this ‘bot will remember customers’ faces and their preference of coffee for their next visit to the stores. That’s something at least.
