A school in London is set to become the first to welcome a robot teacher when it opens in September.
The humanoid robot, known as Pepper, will be used in classrooms, to help teach pupils about cutting-edge robotics.
Standing at just over a metre tall, this high-tech creation, equipped with microphones, HD cameras and 3D depth sensors, will interact with students in their lessons.
According to Japanese robotics company, this will '...help people grow, enhance their life, facilitate the relationship, he will have fun with them, give some services and connect them with the outside world.'
They describe him as 'kindly, endearing and surprising'.
