Thanks for this its much appreciated, the only thing I can’t find is the installation instructions and documentation, all the links I’ve found go to either the developer pages with a 404 error, the support pages which resents a blank page or the jibo-toolkit.jibo.com which won’t let me log in and says I need to be invited in by a member. If you wonder why I’m trying to do this, I support some Autistic Children and every week we go to a special youth club where I often take along robots i’m repairing or working with.
these include NAO from Aldebaran, Bobi Bobi and Chinese AI Humanoid Robot, PLEO an AI dinosaur and AIBO an AI Dog. The kids love these robots as they are none threatening and cute and don’t demand anything from them other than cuddles. The cuddles is particularly useful as of course due to all of the scares over abuse the kids aren’t allowed to touch each other. But they can cuddle the robots who like PLEO will cuddle back and purr.
They will be fascinated by Jibo as they often try to asked NAO questions, but as NAO has no bot connection he can’t answer, and answer is what JIBO does. One of me clients (friends) is 15 and severely Autistic and likes to ask the same question or questions hundreds of times, as I trained as a Psychiatric Nurse before University and Psychology and AI I am not phased by it but my wife for example likes him but cannot stand the questions. You most likely see where I’m going, the great thing about JIBO is it will answer the same question in the same way hundreds of times, it would let pascal ask about other things and it movement and 1 eye’d face is very human. Before Pascal and Oliver his neurologist typical brother love the robots, here is Oliver with my NAO v3 which I sadly dropped and broke.
If the JIBO team had have investigated the disability and support sector they would have found my investors JIBO is also a perfect companion robot for the elderly which is would Bobi Bobi was built for.
I’m hoping to create a few sample dances and things for the kids at TANG if I can get the kit going. If Jibo-toolkit is still working and has the documentation in it it’d be most grateful if you could offer me membership.
Many thanks for all your help so far.
