DeAGOSTINI – Robi – Charming Robot and member of the family that you can assemble by yourself

DeAGOSTINI - Robi - Charming Robot and member of the family that you can assemble by yourself

DeAGOSTINI Japan, a publisher that issues a weekly magazine specializing in collectable items, launched “Robi”, the friendly robot that wants to be part of the family.

He can understand more than 200 words so he listens to you and talks to you and makes related gestures. He also can sit, stand, walk, dance, turn on the TV and change channels, and wink at you. Ask him to time your pasta. And should you take an umbrella with you today?

The robot looks like it will be fun for everyone in the family, and putting him together looks fun too. Robi is not for sale outright – every week a new piece of Robi is delivered. Assembly is easy with no tools, programming or special technique required. 70 pieces will be separately delivered to your door, so after ONLY 70 weeks, you have a new member of the family!

The first piece of “Robi” is 790 yen and subsequent pieces are 1,990 yen each.

Robi was created by famous robot creator, Tomotaka Takahashi.

See some of the things Robi can do…

Dancing Robi!

Timer Robi! Tell me when the pasta is done!

TV Robi! Do I need an umbrella?

Cleaning Robi!

      We actually met Mr. Takahashi a few weeks ago and say a Kirobo replica in action – pretty fantastic little machines!

      Oh man, you’re so lucky. I’d love to see one of these little guys in real life. Not to mention you got to meet the genius behind it.
      I wonder if they are going to start commercializing it throughout the world. From what I saw, they intend to bring it to Italy but that’s about it. At least for now anyway.
