So this is a trailer for a horror movie, right?
Sci Fi, I think. At the end, it's clear we're seeing a mock up of the thing and not a real working device.
These robots are amazingly realistic. Oh, and the little white camera's kinda neat too.
Also, a little girl learns demolition techniques from A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer.
A Neal Stephenson reference! That would have worked too. This is really the beginning of all our fantasies.
Fantasies from Neal Stephenson? No thanks. I'd rather fantasies-made-real NOT come from a sword fetishist who can't be buggered to finish his own kickstarter Katana-wank video game and works on the side with one of the biggest patent trolls in the world while spouting BS about how we need more innovation.

...and it's made of nanotubes. Of course.
I will only be satisfied when we have a robot made from 100% pure wolf urine
Way to try and steal the vibe from Her, buttheads.
This reminds me of the Ouya kickstarter.
only a matter of time before they are used for porn purposes. "JIBO, log me into livejasmin and take a video."
Am I missing something? It's basically a voice-activated internet device with servos inside it. It's a self-re-arranging desk lamp with a webcam. It's beyond stupid.
It's Siri except you can look at it in the eye and bake at the same time. Most people spend most of their time baking and waiting for appointments that they can't remember. What world are YOU living in?
Teddy Ruxpin at least looked vaguely like a mammal. Do you want your child to bond with a desk lamp? I've seen the future, and it's a sperg paradise.
And now because I watched this stupid thing, I'm seeing ads for it EVERY-FUCKING-WHERE IN MY BROWSER!
Okay, it beats ads for Alieve, but still, other than "watched dumb video about dumb robot and said disparaging things about it," what in my NSA and/or Google snooping history says I'd even consider buying one of these things?!
Unless... ads are now a kind of punishment?

So it's a furby with all the capabilities of Skype and a crappy voice recognition program.
And it is capable of falling in love with your prepubescent daughter!
