    Link: Jibo - The Family Robot - He is coming to homes everywhere. Cool or too Orwellian?

    Good design in that when it turns it gives the illusion of waist, shoulders and neck; It will set groundwork for future like devices.
    It`s still way overpriced.

    It`s cool, but a little invasive too. Kids or spouses could never get away with anything they did at home. Link everybody`s smart phones into it and activities outside the house could be tracked. Then, too, you know the NSA will be listening and watching everything that happens in its presence.

    Call me when it can clean the toilet (and not report my "business" back to Google).

    I like the idea but i fond it to static.
    When i walk from my living-room to my kitchen either i have to have one there, drag the one in the living room with me or have to scream when it needs to do something.

    Now, if it could be combined with this little fellow, it would be unbeatable.
    The Play-i is a mobile robot that teaches children from 5 years and older to program the robot. It begins with pushing icons to make the robot move to using code for the older children.

    If i could have a robot like these combined that would folow me around and handle calls, read recipes, plays music etc. wherever i go, i would be the first one to buy it.
