Subby fails for not including Sarah Conner in headline.

Meh.  Let me know when I can get one of these:

If it doesn't have an orifice to fark, what's the point?

That looked pretty smart. I wish we could stop people who wet their pants in terror at everything from writing articles and submitting headlines. If that terrifies you you're a giant pansy.
 
2014-07-21 09:27:04 AM
How can it do anything without arms or a way to move?

Welsh. It'll explode.

But can it help me rob houses?

I say fark you Jibo, I do it myself.

Well, to be fair, this was pretty freaky.

That said, I came away more impressed than I expected I would. That thing is pretty cool...

Jibo is nice and all, but I want Papero, which is sadly not for sale yet.

Kome: Jibo is nice and all, but I want Papero, which is sadly not for sale yet.


Never will be. I'm pretty sure they're just a research project.

I've been in Japan for a decade now, been through Akiba a million times. There are robot shops and robot galleries. I've seen a lot of stuff. Never seen a Papero though.

"Jibo, record this sex tape for me."

why don't they just make the center light red and be done with it.

I was going to reference that little upright roomba thing Marty McFly had running around his house in Caprica.

FTFA: At present, Jibo's uses might sound a touch limited: he'll be able to carry out hands-free calls, capture video and photos, read your messages and reminders on queue and control any other high tech toys you might have in your 'connected home'. However, as soon as developers get their hands on Jibo's workings, its designers hope the variety of applications available to the robotic PA will grow rapidly.

Yes but can Jibo help you hit a curve ball?

Just don't drink its rum and you should be OK.

Came for this. Jibo need a refill.

Okay, I wasn't going to say anything about him being late to the reference, but come on, I had him beat by over an hour.

On further review, I give you full credit for being Weeners. However, he made it easy with large, easy to follow graphics.

Jaden Smith First of His Name: "Jibo, record this sex tape for me."


Yup.  Just give it some locomotion, and you've got an unintrusive cameraman for filming porn.

That actually would make me want to buy it.  With the voice and everything, of course.

Jibo + Roomba = amateur porn industry explodes overnight

If you notice all the people in the video were alone. This is a replacement for human companionship for people who can't be trusted with a pet.

Named after Pames "Jibo" Karry, I presume?
 
2014-07-21 04:30:09 PM
Cheese.

Patril.

That's pretty neat but it would have to have a serious security system to prevent hacking.

I ain't never assisted nobody! Bite my shiny metal ass!

After watching the video, I'm pretty sure that Jibo's real job is to rat you out.

"Hey, Jibo, where did I put my bong."
"I called the cops and they came and got it. You have a voicemail from the Sheriff... would you like to hear it now?"
