Hello, Jibo.

The World’s First Family Robot Could Be Like HAL in Your Home

Meet Jibo. On track to exist next year, Jibo is being marketed as “the world’s first family robot.” The bulbous little guy can read to kids in the living room, recite recipes in the kitchen, take photos in the yard, and perform a handful of other simple tasks. Jibo is also a little bit creepy.

The idea of a robotic family helper is a terrifically timeless one. At least as far back as the original Jetsons series, we squishy humans have longed for someone to do our dirty work around the house. And over the years, we’ve gotten various versions of homebots. While Sony’s robotic dog Aibo and iRobot’s roaming cleaner Roomba aren’t quite Rosie, progress has been steady, however slow. Jibo, however, looks like a leap forward.

funny, but i can totally see people geek’n out over something like this… looks cute and friendly, almost like something Pixar might come up with.
