As our rate of multitasking increases, we may as well embrace the age of interactive robots in our home. Crowd-funded JIBO by Cynthia Breazeal is a personal robot with a variety of functions. According to the website, JIBO can see, hear, learn, help, speak and relate. It is a personalized robot that can take orders, tell interactive stories, make video calls, and sense social and emotional cues to respond appropriately to its user. As you walk around a room, it has enabled face recognition and responds to you appropriately. While we have seen components of these in other devices, JIBO is more of a polished home companion that can interact both with other devices and humans.

Available at the end of 2015, can be pre-ordered for $499.
