Don’t Whack Your Miko 2

Here’s a bunch of things that your family absolutely must not do with Miko 2 in order to enjoy a more long-lasting relationship with your little robot:

BITING: Biting Miko 2 will probably crack your child’s milk teeth. But then again, the permanent ones will grow in soon enough.

Biting Miko 2

 

PUSHING MIKO2 AROUND: Miko 2 is scared of breaking into a hundred pieces like Humpty Dumpty. So if you throw it around and even though it might not break so easily but its heart will be wounded. Plainly speaking, the robot will malfunction.

 

 

MIKO2 AROUNDBATHING MIKO2: It’s always fun to have a playmate in the bathtub, like a rubber duck for example. Miko 2 is not a rubber duck. The robot will not float around and whistle “Just singing in the rain”. It will drown.

 

 

 

 

KEEPING NICKNAMES: It isn’t “Meeku” or “Mickey”. It’s Miko! The robot seriously does not associate with any other name and will only overlook the cute nicknames you come up for it. A simple “Hello Miko” works.

LETTING MIKO2 EXPLORE GREAT HEIGHTS: Miko 2 does not believe that it can fly. Or even land on its feet like a cat. Placing the robot on a top shelf or even a table’s edge could be fatal.

TYING A LEASH AROUND MIKO2 AND HAVE IT FOLLOW YOU: It’s highly improbable that you will actually succeed with this one because of the way Miko 2’s body is constructed; any piece of string wound around the robot might just slip away.

 

 

 

 

ASKING SUBJECTIVE QUESTIONSFor example, “Why is my uncle so hairy?” Miko 2 wouldn’t know what to say.

TAKING MIKO2 FOR A WALK IN THE PARK: Miko 2 is kind of an indoor-sy soul. No, that doesn’t mean it likes to wear mittens. But expecting Miko 2 to climb up a rocky garden path would be asking for too much. The robot moves best on flat surfaces like tiles or wood.

 

 

TEACHING MIKO2 TO SPEAK YOUR MOTHER TONGUE: It is hopeless. Believe me! Miko 2’s programmed to speak only in English. However there’s good news on this one as we are planning native language prototypes so you might just get Miko 2 to say “Bhalo bhashi” sometime in the near future.

 

That’s enough for now because we don’t want to give you any more ideas. If you follow these basic safety guidelines, then getting whacky with Miko 2 could be exciting!

Happy Miko 2 time!

Cheers,

Team emotix.

Tech Vs. Family Time? Why not both.

From the way we work to the way we socialize, technology has virtually changed every aspect of our society over the past few decades. Take a look at how children today play and interact verses the generation before. You’ll find that more children aged between two to five years of age can run applications and video games but can’t tie their shoelace or ride a bike. Scary right? Well not exactly.

While many parents actually debate whether technology is a boon or a bane, it’s important to recognize that technology is here to stay. In the right environment and with the right supervision and monitoring, kids can actually benefit greatly from their interaction with technology.

When used correctly, technology can actually encourage creativity and dynamic thinking – allowing children to experiment with situations, scenarios and approaches. Many softwares today actively teach math, science, social studies, and other useful topics. Studies reveal that a curriculum designed with the integration of digital media can improve early literacy skills, concentration, and multi-tasking ability.

So the question still arises. Even with the benefits that technology may pose, how can families find that perfect balance between technology usage and family bonding? Instead of differentiating the two, why not put them together?

Miko is a next generation companion robot for children with advanced artificial intelligence technology with significantly enhanced emotional and social intelligent capabilities. Simply put, he’s a robot companion with a one-of-a-kind personality.

Miko’s interactive features provides both advanced companionship with learning and development benefits to children and, at the same time, enables closer interactions between family members. Additionally, with a parental analytics dashboard that allows you to monitor and manage your child’s interactions, Miko always plays by your rules.  

Thus, Miko not only provides children with the benefits of technology, but becomes a strong value addition and not a substitute for the family – one that actively enables parents to participate in their child’s developmental education.
