JIBO is a robot that can relate to people and make daily tasks easier and more entertaining


This looks too good to be true…..

Picture the scene: You get home from work and a friend asks how your day was, tells you about any messages that were left for you and, because you fancy a takeout, orders from your favorite restaurant which they happen to have on speed dial. But this isn’t your partner or the best housemate ever, it’s “the world’s first family robot.”

JIBO, created by Cynthia Breazeal, pioneer of Social Robotics and MIT Professor, is a robot designed take part in family life. What makes the Jibo special is that it can relate to people, understanding social and emotional cues and responding in kind.

On the JIBO blog, Breazeal explains what makes social robots different.

Social robots don’t just display like our screen-based devices and digital tools. They perceive the shared space around them so that they can respond to you — more like asomeone than a something. Because of this, social robotscan bring any content ‘to life’ in a way that is personally meaningful and emotionally engaging unlike any other technology.
