Jibo Shipping Pre-launch Models in November – Robotics Trends

In an update to its supporters, Jibo announced that there are two ways for its backers to get their hands on the social robot.

Option A: Participate in Jibo’s pre-launch program and receive an early version of Jibo starting in November 2016

Option B: Wait until the public version of Jibo is launched. Jibo didn’t specify a timeframe for when this will happen.

The pre-launch version of Jibo will ship to backers in November on a first-ordered, first-received basis.

Here’s the important part: the hardware will be finalized on the pre-launch version of Jibo, but the software will not be finalized.

Jibo says it will automatically update the software on all the pre-launch models on a regular basis, but that there could be issues. Pre-launch models will offer the same functionality as the public release.
