London: DV Signage, the specialist experience center development agency, has today announced it is launching ‘Pepper PPT’ an application that turns Softbank’s humanoid Pepper Robot into a powerful sales and presentation tool.

The Pepper PPT application is one of a new suite of DV Signage products that puts Pepper at the heart of your customer experience. Simply download the Pepper PPT application. Connect a Pepper Robot to your network. Then whatever you type into the PowerPoint notes section, Pepper will ‘pitch perfectly’ read out loud, before moving automatically onto the next slide.

For that extra layer of presenter body language, the Pepper PPT application also allows you to select between 12 discrete Pepper gestures that can be dropped directly into the text. You can engage any of Pepper’s 20 different motors from its head, body and arms to quickly reinforce your key points. To get the robot to lean into its audience, bang its fist or spin around, simply drag the relevant icon directly into the narrative.

SoftBank’s humanoid Pepper Robot has been at the centre of unprecedented news reports recently as the world is waking up to the potential for robotics to revolutionise every aspect of how humans interact with each other. Pepper with its highly emotive interactions and engaging appearance is currently the market leading ‘service-provider’ styled robot. Crucially it is also available at a relevant price point for a range of applications from corporate receptionist to retail assistant or care provider.

DV Signage have spent the last year developing for the Pepper platform and in that time have developed applications that enable Pepper to have free-flowing natural conversations with customers, control networked IOT devices in a surrounding environment and recognize and personally greet customers and visitors.

‘It is a significant moment,’ comments Ed Lennox, head of Robotics for DV Signage, ‘Pepper PPT is our first general release product. Our previous work has all been about creating custom robotic interactions for specific tasks in retail or customer experience centres. However as the market base of humanoid robots has grown, so has the general demand for flexible and easy to use applications that allow marketing teams to create their own experiences without needing to call in the experts everytime’.

Pepper PPT is compatible with a range of other humanoid robots and can be connected to a host of other web services (such as IBM Watson for non-scripted conversation). For more information, please contact the team at DV Signage Ltd
