Pepper gets into the Movie business


Development company IMJ, part of the Culture Convenience Group has developed a cutting-edge Movie Concierge application for the Pepper humanoid robot platform. 

The launch was designed in the opening of ultra-cool ‘Shonan T-Site’ experience book stores. These specialist architectural experiences are dotted around Japan, and feature a set of magazines and bookstores centered around a virtual ‘high street’ featuring cafes and hair salons. It makes the perfect place to choose your magazines, books and printed media but not movies, until now. 

Now with the Movie Concierge App, customers can ask Pepper for movie recommendations using his touch screen and by voice. Once a movie has been recommended Pepper can even provide patrons with a voucher for discounts off the ticket.
