A new robotic companion has launched via Kickstarter this week called Kiki, providing a robot companion that is capable of learning thanks to its artificial intelligence. The small robot’s personality will evolve and develop as you interact with her say her creators. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the robot sidekick which was launched via the crowdfunding website and is now available from $799 or roughly £657.
If all goes to plan worldwide shipping is expected to start sometime around May 2020. Early bird backers can benefit from a 47% discount off the recommended retail price which will take effect once the Kickstarter campaign comes to an end.
“Out of the box, all baby Kikis start the same. As time goes by, they develop unique quirks that make them different from each other. Kiki’s personality develops in real-time as she spends time with you. If you are mean to her she might ignore you, but if you shower her with love and affection she will love you more. She might be obsessed with rock music or she might growl at your other robot (the vacuum); she can be social, emotional, or even neurotic. There isn’t a dull moment with Kiki around. She can be a little spontaneous and try random things to keep your attention. If Kiki suspects you’re growing tired of her, she can pull another trick out of her hat to keep you entertained.”
