Jibo Wants To Be Your Family’s First Robot
We are dependent on our smartphones to do many things in our family life. These devices set reminders, take pictures, find recipes and let us communicate with one another. But even though they are an integral part of our lives, they don’t feel like part of the family. Meet Jibo, a connected personal assistant that adds a much needed personality to technology making it social. Jibo aims to be your family’s first robot and by the looks of how well it is doing on Indiegogo, there are a lot of family’s that can’t wait to welcome him home.

Jibo is a Wi-Fi enabled robot equipped with two high resolution cameras, a 360-degree microphone and sits on three full-revolute axes which lets him turn his head around to face you when needed. Jibo’s cameras use face-tracking which are perfect for picture taking and for more immersive video calling. And the microphone lets you talk to Jibo from anywhere in the room and have him process what you are saying with his natural language processor.
Like Siri or Google Voice, Jibo can be used to make a call, set an alarm or get the weather. Ask Jibo for a recipe, or to order take-out or even read your a story and he will do it. The more you use Jibo the more he gets to know you. Jibo’s algorithms start to learn about the user to adapt preferences based on your life. 
On top of being completely helpful, Jibo is also super adorable. The concept video for Jibo on the Indiegogo campaign brings to life a robot that we would expect to see in a Disney movie.  
The Jibo campaign has raised nearly nine times its funding goal with tons of time on the clock. Early adopters who need to have Jibo in their home as soon as possible can grab one for $499 USD with a shipping date of December of 2015. The campaign just recently unlocked a perk for those more patient which lets them pre-order Jibo for 2016 with only $199 down now to pay the rest closer to the shipping date.
