There are Jibo knockoffs popping up in China, but the real Jibo will launch in China—and the U.S.—in 2017, the company said at CES. Jibo has partnered with Ling Technology, a subsidiary of NetPosa Technologies that develops consumer AI technologies, to bring the social robot to China. NetPosa is a Jibo investor.

Jibo was co-located in Ling’s booth at CES, and Ling’s website has already been updated with a page for a product called JiboQ, which is an app to introduce Chinese consumers to a virtual version of Jibo before it’s released. Jibo will supply the hardware, and Ling will handle everything else—software, services, etc.—to make sure the social robot aligns with the local culture.
