Pepper Still Needs Paper Instructions!

In a recent video (see below) by Aldebaran Robotics, their community leader Nicola Rigaud reports recent stories about Pepper. Riguaud gives an overview of projects presented during the finals of the SoftBank Challenge for Japanese developers. He also visited some shops where Pepper is actually put to work. A funny detail makes us think that we still have a long time to go before Pepper becomes as smart as BB-8 and other droids from Starwars. The Pepper at the entrance of a store has, stick to the bottom of its screen, a paper with what seems to be instructions to users (see picture below). A surprisingly low-tech “accessory” for Human-Robot Interaction!
