And no, he is not taking over the jobs of humans or the world (at leastfor now)!
If you are incapable or unnecessarily afraid of social interaction (like me), then KEMPA should bring you joy. KEMPA is the new humanoid robot that will not only greet you in airports but also provide necessary information.

Before people race to the comments section claiming that the robots have started stealing our jobs, let the company behind the humanoid have their say.
Sirena technologies have been using the humanoid robot to enrich kids in education and life skills! Conducting bootcamps in schools, they hope to inspire young minds to take up technology from a young age!
Our first Robotic lab in school is up and running! kids are loving it! #nino #furtureofeducation @Startup_Kar @PriyankKharge pic.twitter.com/v3atJCO1s6

And Sirena technologies has a dedicated team of engineers backing up the company! Safe to say, the future of jobs is in the right hands!
Kudos to the government furthering the cause of implementing new technologies that will inspire future minds!
*Side note: if robots ever took over the earth; they wouldn’t look as scary as the ones from Terminator – apparently.
