A popular domestic robot called Pepper has sold out in Japan with the next batch due to go on sale later this month. Pepper stands at just over a metre tall with blue eyes and has a small screen mounted on her chest.
The company selling the humanoid robot has issued a very strange warning to consumers not to perform a sexual act on its robots.
