Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas has appointed Pepper, a cute humanoid robot, as Technical Ambassador.

The newest team member will primarily be based in the Sky Lobby located on the 23rd floor, greeting guests, and complementing hotel services.

With large expressive eyes and lifelike movements and gestures, the four-foot (1.2-metre) tall Pepper can discern a guest’s gender, approximate age and mood.
