'Emotive' family robot assists and entertains, doesn't do windows, Ep. 166

Culture
[NOISE] Hey guys, my name is Stephen Beacham, and here's what's happening this week on cnet's crave blog. [MUSIC] The coolest cooler is the Swiss Army knife of coolers, and comes with so many features that I found myself. Self craving one. This cooler is the coolest and does a great job of keeping things cool. But it also comes with USB charger for mobile devices. A waterproof bluetooth speaker for impromptu dance parties. A built in 18 volts blender for margarita production, a storage for plates and silverware, altering wide wheels, sturdy tie down technology, waterproof LED lights for finding your beverages in the dark, a divider which doubles as a cutting board, and last but not least, a bottle opener. The Coolest Cooler is currently one of the most popular items on Kickstarter and blew by it's funding goal of $50,000 to well over $5 million. That's a lot of Coolest Coolers. The Coolest Cooler can be yours for a pledge price of $185. And possibly some extra shipping fees at Kickstarter.com. Tiyo is an eject button that can get you out of any [INAUDIBLE] life situation. Say for example, you're on a crappy date with Captain McDouche and there seems to be no end in sight for the date or his [INAUDIBLE] conversation. That's easy. Just simply press the button and the Tiyo will call your phone. I mean. I'm sorry. [LAUGH] It must be important. Hello. Oh, my God, I totally forgot. I'm so sorry. I'll be right there. Sorry, I have to go. You, then, will have to pretend to take the call and act your way out of the situation. Tiyo stands for This Is Your Out and the company's tagline is. An eject button for social situations. The Tiyo button is small and fits on your key chain for easy access. The basic Tiyo package comes with a thirty five dollar pledge price on Indie Gogo which includes twenty five calls. Additional calls are sold in blocks of twenty five for five dollars. Learn more about the Tiyo button at indiegogo.com [NOISE]. Hey, mom, how you doing? Good, good. Yeah, the show's kinda sucking, I was just trying to get out of it. What's going on with you? Cat face recognition software has finally been perfected with Bistro, the smart cat feeder from 41ark.com. Bistro is an automated cat feeder that uses a facial recognition camera to identify your cats. Space. According to the 42 arc website, after the cat leaves the weight sensors beneath the feeding tray, waterer and the weighing scale automatically calculate the amount of food and water your cat takes as well as their weight. Bistro can identify multiple cats and feed them various amounts of food based on their feeding history. This. Data is immediately sent through Bistro's cloud server right to your smartphone where pet owner can easily review your cat's diet history and health report using the Bistro app. Pet owners can even watch a life stream of their beloved cat having lunch while you're out and about. Bistro is just a few dollars away from passing it's Indie Gogo funding goal. And will retail for $249 when it comes to market. Jibo wants to be accepted into your family unit and has been billed as the world's first family robot. Unfortunately, Jibo is stationary so don't expect him to clean your house or get you a beer or anything. [INAUDIBLE] It will however, take pictures and video of your family, deliver email and phone messages, order take out, and read bedtime stories to your kids. Let me in, or else I'll Huff. And I'll Puff. And I'll blow your house in. [LAUGH]. JIBO uses a variety of algorithms to learn your families faces and adapt to the needs of different family members. The body of the robot has sensors that react to to touch and it will display images like a heart to show that it loves you. JIBO is also a smart **** and may be annoying. Say hi JIBO. Hi JIBO. But you can video conference with your family and use Jibo to look around the room at different people. Jibo is also cute and expensive. You can get your very own Jibo robot for $499, shipping in September 2015. Alright guys, that's your show, thank you very much for watching.
