Another new friend for Jibo?

Could Jibo also be friends with this robot, in his quest to get to know other mechanical beings? His name is Fribo!


It may just be me, but Fribo looks a bit like a black cat from a cartoon or something. Given how it looks, I think that if I saw it in a dark room and didn’t know what it was, I would be terrified! haha


I was wondering how it would get all that information (opening doors, microwave on etc etc ). Interesting, apparently Fribo recognizes these things by pure sound.

I do remember a time though when articles like these would inevitably mention Jibo. That seems to be over at this point. I mean, Fribo clearly got its name from Jibo. The CNET article about all the robots at CES made no mention of Jibo either.
