    Jibo is just like one of the family ….. connected directly to the NSA network so they can see all is well at your house 24-7. Right.

    • I suspect so.

      And even better yet since you invited said spy device into your home they wouldn’t even need a warrant to admit said data they could just call it as a witness.

      In the current world we live in a device like this is not something I would allow into my home given the current world issues.

      • I won’t ever walk around the house naked again!

        • Exile1981

          No computers with cameras, smart TV’s or other spy devices in the bedroom.

          I used to walk around the house naked Cat — but the neighbours complained, so I had to go inside.

    • He looks just like that;)

        Uncanny eh? D:

    • Exile1981

      A Jibo with a red eye and that called everyone dave would be funny…. until it started killing people.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Then it would be hysterical!

      Thanks so much for posting this. I was reminded of HAL a few weeks ago when I was discharged from hospital. The acronym-loving Wynners have a new (money-wasting) program they call HAL — home at last. Interestingly, nobody involved in my discharge procedure knew who/what HAL was!!

      This is exactly what I was thinking.

    Get your free Obama-bot!

    • I bet he’s a pedophile!

      “Excuse me Xavier, it seems to have forgotten to pick your Democrat membership card in the letterbox.”

      • Xavier

        So I filled it out and mailed it for you.

    Looks like a 70’s retro Dalek.

      Take that large hammer just to the upper right of the lady’s head and wack JIBO with it!

      This thing would become a nuisance very quickly, I thing.

    • Perfect;)

  • BillyHW

    No no no! What we need is a robot who will pick our crops!

    • Xavier

      I used to work for a well known lawn care equipment company – think red – and they are pursuing robotic, battery powered armies of equipment that can operated alone at night to mow large turf areas like parks and golf courses. The justification is that with GPS it will be accurate, silent, and labor costs will be reduced to maintenance.

      Pity the drunk who falls asleep on the fairway.

    How about huffing and puffing with your Mom or Dad? Or they are too busy with their Jibo?

  • Wally Keeler

    Cool. I want a cluster of them on the table negotiating world peace amongst themselves

  • Dana Garcia

    Jibo may do your job for a whole lot less cost to your employer. More intelligent robots mean some professional occupations are going the way of the dinosaur.

    I want a jibo that can wash my bathrooms, do the dishes, mop the floors, make the beds AND take out the garbage.

    Cuz I can take my own photos, thank-you.

    • Ghost of Ed

      Just what I was thinking. And shovel the snow.

      • Xavier

        How many times do I have to tell you: SNOW IS A THING OF THE PAST! THERE IS NO SNOW!

      You can call José and Sofía ‘Jibo and Jibette’ if you want, and they’re cheaper than the real Jibo.

  • DD_Austin

    Now we know, Big Brothers first name is Jibo
    And Jibo will arrange your reservation for you,…. in Room 101

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    As soon as “Jibo” gets jammed inside a “hot mannequin” that will do light housework and give you ‘happy endings’ to your day, then I think the divorce rate will skyrocket.

    • Xavier

      In all seriousness, you’re probably right. The one thing that may hold families together is child raising, but even with 2 parents today’s family is stretched thin to provide adequate care and attention to the kids. Expect the government to step in with 24 hour indoctrination care centers. Subsidized for race and Sharia compliant.

        someone did a very funny review of this thing

      • Exile1981

        Actually the US gov’t is spending 10 million to finance teaching robots for very young kids in the US to be designed to tech them and intervene in deficits in their education

    Reminds me of Kenny from South Park.

    I like that contraption. Wonder if it understands Yiddish? Gives a whole new meaning to ..the walls have ears.
