TOKYO — A Japanese company has decided to totally take the life out of funerals by using SoftBank's humanoid robot Pepper as a Buddhist priest for funerals that you can hire. With the help of some software upgrades, Pepper can now chant sutras in a robot voice while tapping on a drum, Reuters reported. The priest bot was on display at a funeral trade show in Tokyo on Wednesday. The robot provides a cheaper alternative than getting a human priest. Old school priests will run you around $2,200, while Pepper only costs about $450 per funeral. Pepper can be outfitted in different robes depending on the wishes of the customers. They can also live-stream the ceremony to people who aren't able to attend the funeral in person.----------------------------------------­---------------------Go to and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.TomoNews is your best source for real news.
