Cynthia Breazeal, a robotics professor at MIT, has taken some time off from MIT to launch Jibo. Jibo is a social robot for your home that has facial recognition and can differentiate between different family members.
Jibo can also do things like greet you when you come home or read your email aloud. Jibo also sports two hi resolution cameras to take pictures for you. Currently you can pre-order Jibo through the Indiegogo campaign. Check out the video below or go to http://www.myjibo.com.
