Jibo: Fun Family Failure or Laughable Failure?
For those of you who don't know, there's something known as a JIBO out there. Somewhere. Lurking. Watching. Waiting. Casually helping out a family with basic tech tasks. JIBO is a home android made for family use. He's family friendly, comes in black and white, has a high non-violent voice, the whole scha-blang. Seems pretty cool. Seems like a step forward in turning the Terminator movies into our imminent reality. But, taking a step back to reevaluate, we come to wonder; is this the best JIBO can do? If you hadn't noticed JIBO most likely needs to be plugged in at all times, and it's not like it teleports from place to place within your house. You have to lug that swivelly thing under your arm so you can skype your son who made an excuse who made an excuse to not show up on the Holidays. I won't lie; it's a great product. I just think they could've done a lot better if they're charging over 200 dollars. *Disclaimer: I'm usually not so harsh, but I thought it made things interesting and you probably won't read all of it. Watch the vid and comment what you think!
