Pepper the robot is coming to Dubai

The world’s first social humanoid will make an appearance at Oasis Centre

Pepper the robot is coming to Dubai

Move over Sophia, there’s a new robot we’d like to meet and he’s coming to Dubai. Happy Pepper is visiting Oasis Centre mall over two weekends, January 25 and 26, and February 1 and 2.

The human-like robot will interact with families using special technology which enables him to recognise faces and basic human emotions, engaging through conversation and a touch screen.

You’ll take a stroll with Pepper, taking selfies, learning more about available offers and he may even treat little ones to a surprise or two.

The creators of Peppers say he can make personalised recommendations, so if you’re torn between Oasis’s Babyshop, Mothercare and Kids’ Style for Less, he may just be all the help you need.

Youngsters who are looking to learn more can also look forward to a Kids Robotics workshop from 11am onwards on both weekends.

But before all of those Wall-E moments, parents and kiddies will also meet and greet Disney’s PJ Masks trio, Catboy, Owlette and Gecko – the stars of a superhero series for kids.

The masked red, blue and green six-year-olds are coming to Oasis Mall on Friday January 18 and Saturday January 19, just a week before the friendly robot’s arrival.

We have a feeling Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) sales are the reason Pepper is so happy – but so are we our friend, so are we.
