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.
