Robotic Friend for Children ZiBear Takes Robotics Craze to the Next Level

Today, Zetta Sense announced early success of the ZiBear smart toy in their Indiegogo campaign. The fun and educational opportunities of this intelligent talking bear are virtually unlimited.

LONDON, April 22, 2014 -- ZiBear is a smartphone and internet-minded teddy bear that was created to infuse new life into traditional toys. Parents can control this toy to say, answer and quiz anything. ZiBear is one of a kind in that it can literally listen to a child's question and answer back. Based on different real-life scenarios, parents can also simply type in quick messages on their smartphones via the ZiBear App and ZiBear will speak the words. Parents, therefore, become the soul of ZiBear.

In addition, ZiBear can convey a great deal of fun through singing, dancing and storytelling, all customizable. Its potential can be maximized by its Cloud based contents store and parental love and creativity. More importantly, it presents a way for children to go beyond addicting screen devices to gather information and knowledge. Further, ZiBear can speak 25 languages and handle different regional accents and dialects.

Paul Kutschmarski, the co-founder of Zetta Sense stated, "Every child has dreamed about having a talking teddy bear that they could talk to and who would respond - a toy that would be a true friend as they grow up. Well, that is not a fantasy anymore!"

We're definitely a long ways from the real autonomous toys pictured in the movie A.I. (2001) or TED (2012). However, robotics is on the rise. Google has acquired eight robotics companies, and robotic toys have begun to make their way onto the market. ZiBear is different in that it is not only aimed at offering high A.I., but also focuses on interaction and fun between parents and children.

ZiBear's current Indiegogo campaign is seeking to raise �£30,000 ending on May 24th, 2014 and has secured almost 1/3 of its target in the first few days. Please visit the ZiBear's Indiegogo page to learn more:
