Photo Journal: Robotic reserve


A man shows a barcoded card with information of a carrel desk reservation to the humanoid robot Pepper at the Edogawa Ward municipal Shinozaki library in Tokyo. This is believed to be the third Pepper robot introduced at libraries after ones in Yamanashi and Fukuoka prefectures. Unlike its fellow Peppers at other libraries that serve as entertainment purposes for visitors, the one in Edogawa Ward is part of the staff and it's in charge of managing reservations for the 29 carrel desks at the library.
