The Jibo robot does the same stuff as your phone, and is very comparable to Siri.” It’s a little pod with a motorized swivel, equipped with cameras, microphones and a display. It recognizes faces and voices, and can act as a personal assistant by setting reminders, delivering messages and offering to take group photos. It also serves as a telepresence robot for video chat.” (Time.com)

Why it’s hot: Is this the future? 100 years ago no one would have ever imagined that cell phones would make their way into society and people would become dependent on such devices.Today we look at Jibo and some may think this is an outrageous idea, while others applaud the creators. Who would buy such a thing, why is it necessary? But maybe this is the next step in technology.
