Meet JIBO the Family Robot and What Could be the Beginning of the End [VIDEO]

Your family might be welcoming in a new member in the near future.  Meet JIBO.  JIBO is ‘the world’s first family robot.’  JIBO has two cameras, so it can track you, recognize your face, take pictures and make video calls.  You can talk to the robot and it will talk back to you.  It can also give you your phone messages and reminders.  It learns from you and adapts to your lifestyle, and can help you with everyday tasks.  For example, when you come home from work, and you’re too tired to order a pizza, or turn the lights on, JIBO will do it for you.  If you don’t want to read a story to your child, JIBO will do it, and JIBO will do it better than you can because it uses sound effects and video.  JIBO is not mobile, so it can’t chase you around the house, yet.  Maybe the next version will have wheels. Their website says JIBO will be ready for public release in early 2016, but you can pre-order now.  This could be the beginning of the end.  JIBO reminds me of the Hal 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey.  I don’t need that in my house.  I’ll take the risk when they come out with a version of JIBO that can cook, clean and walk the dog.
