In this development video, hosted by Jesse Gray & Matt Berlin of Team Jibo and the MIT Media Lab, we’ll discuss how Jibo uses movement, sound, LEDs, and screen graphics to communicate with people and convey emotion and intention.
Ever wonder why Jibo’s eye was designed as a ball? And why does he have only one eye instead of two? Check out this video with Jibo’s Lead Designer & Animator, Fardad Faridi, as he briefly describes the nature and design of Jibo’s eye.
What is a social robot supposed to look like? We have asked ourselves this question many times during the last year. HUGE design was fortunate enough to be partnered with the Jibo team and tasked with creating the industrial design/look and feel for Jibo. At first, it seemed that our lack of experience designing anything remotely close to a robot might be a problem. We quickly learned however that this product needed to be unlike any existing robot, and a fresh industrial design was going to be a crucial part in defining this new socially charged experience for users.
