JIBO, The Robot That Wants To Be Part Of Your Family

Jibo, pass me the butter. Oh wait -- YOU CAN'T DO THAT.

This is a video introduction to JIBO, a home robot designed to become part of your family and help everyone throughout the day. The robot, which is Wi-Fi connected, can track faces, take pictures, search the internet, tell stories, watch you while you sleep, and slowly off your other family members until you admit it's your favorite. The robot is currently an Indiegogo project but has already met 10x its goal, so $500 will get you one when they ship late next year. Alternatively, be honest enough with yourself to realize you'll only use it for a month before the novelty wears off/the only use you're getting out of is to try to impress guests. It will sit in a closet until you mark it for $100 at your next yard sale. A woman will tell you her two young children would love it and offer you $30, and you will take it.

Keep going for the video.
