Smartibot is essentially a DIY cardboard robot that makes use of developments in technology and harnesses artificial intelligence to enable a dynamic smart interface. The product is ideal for consumers interested in quirky tech products, as well as a great way to have some family fun.
Smartibot is paired with a smartphone. Users can remotely control the DIY cardboard robot via an application or can attach the phone to the AI-powered miniature device to serve "as its brain."
The Smartibot app is equipped with a powerful technology that enables it to recognize objects as people, dogs, bicycles and cars. The Kickstarter campaign highlights some uses for the DIY cardboard robot that include telling "the robot to follow you around with a cup of tea" or "chasing your dog [...] out of your bedroom."
