Let Pepper the Robot Pour You a Beer at the Oakland Airport - 7x7

If you're catching a flight at Oakland airport, take a seat at the Pyramid Taproom in Terminal 2 and let Pepper, the humanoid robot, take care of you. Pepper— a four-foot-tall robot in all white—can show you the menu, provide food and drink recommendations, and, if you are not satisfied with Pyramid's offerings, suggest other places to dine throughout the airport. The charming robot is the brainchild of SoftBank Robotics America , a robotics company with an office in San Francisco. In October 2016, three Future Robot-made robots — named Norma, Amelia and Piper — joined the team at Mineta.

Now you can order a drink from a cold robot that measures alcohol with atom-splitting precision. According to Eater Las Vegas , though the forthcoming drinking hole has a location and its aforementioned head-turning “first in the world” catch phrase, many of the important ones and zeros have yet to be nailed down.
