The year is 2051. Two robots are on stage at TEDxLeuven. Zora and Pepper, humanoids who have been assisting humanity for the past 35 years, are here to talk about the past. How mankind progressed from the dark ages of 2016, to this wonderful new Utopian world.

Created by Belgium-based company Zora Robotics, these robots mark an important phase in how technology is changing the human experience.
