A humanoid robot, jointly developed by University of Tokyo and Japan's public research organization Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, lifts up a basket filled with coral sand weighing around 30 kg (66 pounds) during a demonstration in Tokyo April 24, 2007. The robot, aimed to be used in fields such as nursing care and housework, is the world's first humanoid robot which is capable of lifting up a box weighing 30 kg (66 pounds) and dragging a mannequin weighing 66 kg (145 pounds) controlled by its built-in sensors, Tokyo University's professor Yasuo Kuniyoshi said.

A robot named "Robovie-II" moves around a grocery store in Kyoto January 6, 2010. "Robovie-II" is part of an experiment developed by Japanese robotics research institution ATR, to help the elderly with chores. The robot greets the shopper at the entrance of the store, follows him to the shelves while holding a grocery basket and reminds him of the items on a shopping list, which the shopper would have entered beforehand in a specialized mobile device.

SoftBank Corp's human-like robot named "Pepper" gestures as it introduces Nestle's coffee machines at an electric shop in Tokyo December 1, 2014. Nestle SA started to use robots to help sell its coffee makers at electronics stores across Japan, becoming the first corporate customer for the chatty, bug-eyed androids unveiled in June by tech conglomerate SoftBank Corp. The waist-high robot, developed by a French company and manufactured in Taiwan, was touted by Japan's SoftBank as capable of learning and expressing human emotions, and of serving as a companion or guide in a country that faces chronic labour shortages. The maker of Nescafe coffee and KitKat chocolate bars plans to have the robots working at 1,000 stores by the end of next year, a Nestle official said.
