Jibo 2

Design strategy


The concept of humans connecting emotionally with robots was conceived and studied by Cynthia Breazeal, an MIT professor of robotics, with a vision for creating the world’s first social robot assistant. In 2014, the startup she founded traveled to San Francisco to find a design team to help realize her vision, marking the beginning of its relationship with Huge Design.

Communicating with Jibo involves a combination of conversational voice and touch interactions.

Tabletop intelligence

Jibo is the first-ever highly capable social robot for the home. This intelligent desktop companion emotionally connects with users through its sophisticated voice interaction, animated UI face and physical movement of human-like poses and expressiveness.

The design for Jibo was an exercise in human form abstraction. The seamless design approach discretely divided the head and body into motor-controlled tilted-axis rotational sections. This configuration allows Jibo to appear clean and non-mechanical while enabling virtually silent movement. The angled movement creates the illusion that Jibo is dancing, able to snap into a variety of thoughtful poses with precision and sophistication.

The final product was an exercise in human abstraction through the composition of pure geometry.

Its dynamic movement and seamless poses create its high-energy personality.
