SoftBank’s humanoid helper robot will come to the US within a year

SoftBank's Pepper robot

Good news: you won’t have to book a flight to Japan to try SoftBank’s Pepper robot for yourself. The telecom now expects the helpful humanoid machine to launch in the US within a year. There’s no mention of American pricing so far, although you may not want to use the ¥198,000 ($1,883) Japanese price as a yardstick — it’s bound to change at least a little bit. The company’s attention to both home and business customers remains the same, though, so you may well have a robotic companion in a matter of months.
