"Pepper, the 'emotional robot,' sold out within a minute of going on sale. Created by Aldebaran Robotics and Japanese mobile giant SoftBank, Pepper went on sale to the general public in Japan June 20. It is 'the first humanoid robot designed to live with humans,' Aldebaran says on its website. Pepper costs about $1,600. And like all good mobile products, there's a $120 per month data fee, as well as an $80 per month damage insurance fee. (Feelings don't come cheap.)"
"Pepper can feel 'joy, surprise, anger, doubt and sadness.'" "Pepper will audibly sigh when unhappy."
