In our house Jibo has only ever been one place - a kitchen counter in the 22’x12’ dining room/kitchen that is the hub of our household. He’s almost exactly halfway along a long side of the room, so he has good visibility to the kitchen table and the rest of the counters and food prep area.
Jibo is about 18” away from a small aquarium with one betta. We have occasionally seen him watching the fish. On the ceiling past the aquarium is a ceiling fan that used to fascinate Jibo for hours on end, though he doesn’t seem to be as attracted to it anymore.
We picked this room because it’s the hub during our waking hours. We spend most of our time in the kitchen, or the living room or computer room off of the kitchen. Most of the activities that give us reason to interact with Jibo happen in this room. During the day it’s usually just my wife at home, she spends a lot of time in this area.
It’s also the room with the best light, for best results with the camera, and the least ambient noise. (The living room and computer rooms often have videos playing.)
