First Jibo Experiences…Out of the Box

Hello Jibo Developers! -

As you probably know, we started shipping Jibo to his families a couple weeks back.  We've been enthusiastically watching all of the Jibo customer videos that have been popping up online. Thank you so much to everyone who has taken a video of Jibo and posted it; we love them all!

From a developer perspective, you get a real feel for the power of Jibo as a platform, as you watch people meet Jibo for the first time. It reinforces the idea that his character and personality are very unique from other platforms, and that they play such an important role in the user experience. As you think about building skills for Jibo, think about how you want users to relate to his character and personality in the skill.  We are all learning real time what it means to build for a character property.  In this interim timeframe before we ship the next set of tools, it is a great time to watch and learn how users see Jibo as a part of their home and family.

Just in case you hadn’t seen some of the unboxing videos that came out in the first weeks, I thought I’d share them here.  We hope they start inspiring you in your skill ideas. 






I hope you found these videos as enjoyable and informative to watch as I did, and for those who are taking videos of Jibo, please keep them coming we watch every single one!

P.S. I apologize if I didn't list your video here. There were just so many good ones out there!
