Want your very own WALL-E? We sure as hell do. And that’s why we’re pretty stoked by this Indiegogo project that promises to bring a friendly, playful, and helpful robot into your homes by late next year.

Meet Jibo, billed as the “world’s first family robot,” this little guy (11 inches tall) aims to be an integral part of your daily life, with the ability to talk to you, recognize you, take pictures and video, perform tasks, entertain, and just overall be a much better friend to you than your current BFF. The current plan is for Jibo to feature an open platform to support any third party applications made for it. Jibo is the brainchild of Dr. Cynthia Breazeal, a pioneer of social robotics from the MIT Media Lab. Early adopters can put down $499 now and get theirs in late 2015, with a consumer release planned for 2016. Watch the video below to see JIBO in action. [Purchase]
