Criticize Jibo all you want, but the social robot certainly has admirers.

In late December 2016 EBGbot advertised the Oding robot that looks remarkable similar to Jibo. Now another Chinese company is launching a Jibo lookalike at CES 2017.

Shenzhen-based Avatar Controls, a maker of smart home products, is launching its Eywa E1 Smart Home Security Robot in Sin City. Granted, Eywa is designed to be used much differently than Jibo and isn’t an exact copycat design, but c’mon.

Eywa also has a built-in WiFi speaker and something called a “multifunction player” to entertain and educate kids.
