      4:57 Reminds me of the Airplane movie.

      - You'd better tell the Captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.
      - A hospital? What is it?
      - It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

                    Its so sad when i look at Jibo such a cute little thing specially when he looks at you like he wants to help truly hope that some big name company will buy off Jibo and help in the project

                      I'm very impressive how they've managed the pan and tilt with those slices but the display contrast is indeed an utterly tragic engineering decision.

                      The AI is weak too, no doubt

                        "Being a Jibo" should be a tech community euphemism for making great promises but not delivering on them.

                            he's a pretty good first time implementation for a personal assistant with personality. he has so much more personality reminds me of wheatley though.
