Indiegogo - China-made Smart Social Robot Xibot Raises USD 25,000 Crowdfunding on Indiegogo

With a small body, large round face and cat-like ears, Xibot shares its feelings with other family members and was a hit when originally exhibited at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.

DALIAN, China, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Chinese robotics company Xiaoxi Technology has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for its smart social robot Xibot.


With a small body, large round face and cat-like ears, Xibot shares its feelings with other family members and was a hit when originally exhibited at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.

Since the launch of this campaign, Xibot has been featured on Indiegogo's newsletter and reached its target goal in less than 36 hours, going on to raise almost USD 25,000 in just five days.

Xibot interacts with her owner in a number of innovative ways, for example gently waking them up in the morning, filling them in on the latest weather forecast and reminding them of the important things they need to do that day.

Her voice-activated command function also responds directly to questions and when the owner is away, Xibot will monitor the house. Using front and back 1080p cameras and a built-in WiFi, she can be remotely controlled as a moving monitor anywhere and anytime.

Xibot is also great at parties. Ask her to take a picture and she will capture every smiling face. The photos can also be sent to the user's chosen social network, which allows family and friends to instantly share the happiness. She will also make you laugh as you relive the good times.

Designed by a team at Xiaoxi Technology that has over 10 years' experience in software and hardware development, Xibot is a loyal friend and smart family member that makes life that bit more convenient. For more information contact:

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
