Evangelical Church German city of Wittenberg have developed a robot BlessU-2, which performs the functions of a priest talking to the congregation and blessing them, writes newspaper the Mirror.

Wittenberg is known that 500 years ago on the door in it to the Church door Martin Luther nailed his «95 theses». This event is considered the starting point of the reformation.

«It’s an experiment that should generate debate (in the Church),» — said the press Secretary of the Evangelical Church in Hesse and Nassau Sebastian von gehren.

The robot will be put up during the celebrations dedicated to the anniversary of the reformation. It consists of a metal box with a touch screen, two hands on the side of the head with eyes and a digital mouth.

Robot priest wishes all visitors of the temple «warm welcome» and wondered whether those to receive a blessing. He then asks the believer what a blessing he wants, and then raises his hands to the sky and reads a passage from the Bible and says: «God bless and protect you.» After that, the member can print out a biblical quotation spoken by the robot.

However, the evangelists specify that the robot should still not replace priests. «In the future blessing of the congregation, the robot will not be present in every Church,» said von gehren.The world’s first robot-priest appeared in «the capital of the reformation»
