Jibo: the world’s first social robot for home

The idea of living among robots is no longer a far away concept, starting with Jibo: “the first family robot” as seen in the following promotional video. Jibo launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in an attempt to raise one hundred thousand dollars, but ended up raising 2.3 million. Jibo received so many pre-orders that the company stopped accepting them on their website. This demand is a perfect example of the fact that consumers are eager to bring robotics into their homes.
