Meet Pepper the robot priest.

A ‘robot priest’ has been unveiled in Japan.

The humanoid robot, called Pepper, is designed to help with tasks at Buddhist temples, such as reading Buddhist scripture during funeral ceremonies.

Dressed in a Buddhist robe, the robot chanted sutras at Japan’s largest funeral and cemetery exhibition.

Its creators say the robot can deliver funerals at a cheaper price than a human priest, at €389 compared to €1867.
