Has anyone seen Kuri the home robot that will be available in December?

No. I've never heard of it. Have you found a video or articles about it or something? I'm sure we'd all be interested in knowing more about it.

Wow! Looks interesting. The price is also slightly lower than Jibo too. The last time I checked, Jibo was seven forty nine before shipping. I also found out he cannot be used by someone who is blind or visually impaired. Wonder if Kuri's developers are taking the disabled into consideration? I'll have to go to their video again and see if I can find a "contact us" link or something. At least Kuri moves around rather than remaining a stationary object and if she can be used by a disabled person, I'd be more willing to pay seven hundred.

They seem to be more focused on the human/robot relationship. But what does it actually do?

It can connect to smart home devices so you can control them through voice commands. It can patrol your house and you can use the camera remotely to check on stuff. I think though they are more interested in creating a companion like presence rather than specific functions. They said in one video that it has facial recognition and will act differently with people it knows and do stuff like come to greet you when you come home, follow you around or sometimes just come to up you and stare at you (that last one cracked me up!) It has voice recognition and will reply to you in it's beepy language. It has a sensor on the top of it's head and responds to being petted. It shows emotions with its movements, beeps and colours on its chest. That's all I know about it.

Aw! Wow! This sounds like a blend of Aibo and Alexa. *Grin* Now I'm really intrigued.

Wow. I never heard of it until I saw this. It looks pretty cool. I'm considering putting money down for a pre-order, but I'm not totally sure I want to be a first gen adopter or if I want to wait for it to be out awhile for consumer-level reviews. Hmm...

Grr! Sorry to hear about that. Is the preorder price seven hundred plus shipping?

Yes, $700 plus shipping. The deposit is $100 and you pay the final $600 plus shipping when it's shipped. Wonder if they have any future plans for shipping outside of the US ...

Went to put the money down today and it says that the first run is sold out so putting down today would be for the Spring 2018 wave. Not sure I want to put money down that far ahead of time. I'd probably forget about it by the time it got charged lol.

What? They're out already? Man! They didn't waste any time did they? Lol! I'm like you, Bardian. If I put money down for the two thousand eighteen run, I'd forget about it too. If I didn't have to save up for the Aibo meet here on the East Coast, I would've probably preordered, but I'm like you in that I don't usually like to grab a first run of something. Hopefully somebody on the forums has bought one and we'll get reviews sooner or later. I just hope this isn't one of those disappointing situations like what Jibo customers are going through right now with the release date floating further and further away.

I wonder if Kuri does well if they will come out with an R2 unit.  Sure wouldn't take much to change the body style into one.! :)

*Grin* Haha! How awesome would that be? A little autonomous droid that can connect to both you and your smart home! We're getting there, folks. Hang on and enjoy the ride.
