Miko 3 is Every Child’s New Study Buddy


It’s no secret that tech developers are interested in creating a robot with the emotional capacity of humans. It’s also no secret how challenging it is to build such a machine. Humans are complex in the way we learn, feel, and think, and these capabilities aren’t something that can be programmed so quickly.

That said, developers have gotten pretty close. Friendly robots that serve as companions, workplace employees, nurses, and in the case of Miko the Robot, at home to play and learn with children.

Miko the Robot is a friendly robot that incorporates STEM learning into the lives of kids. By doing so, children of any age can learn and engage with technology-driven products at the same time.

Children who are growing up in a technology-driven world should also be given technology-driven education, and that’s one of the things Miko 3 addresses.

Personality, Platform, Progress, and Privacy

Miko can read books, teach science, math, art, music, and even coding. But what makes it special isn’t its wide breadth of knowledge, but in its four pillars: personality, platform, progress, and privacy.

Miko 3 is able to observe and interact with children, learning their personalities and tailoring their overall experience according to the child’s own preferences. That way, children can maximize learning and enjoyment at the same time. It’s like studying with your very best friend; Miko 3 is said to understand how kids think, empowering them to learn and gaining their trust at the same time, allowing the child to be creative.

As for its platform, Miko 3 is home to both paid and unpaid apps that are fun and educational at the same time. It also puts a primer on strict privacy policies, ensuring all data and progress is protected.

Linda Takahashi

American-born New Yorker Linda Johnson has been fascinated with robotic machines since she was a teenager, when her father, a surgeon, would introduce to her the machines that he used to perform keyhole surgeries. This interest led her to pursue a tech degree at the University of Washington, where she met Sota Takahashi. They married and now have two children. Linda’s father developed dementia later on and was given a robot pet as a companion. She saw how much having a robot pet friend helped her father, which is what led her to create this website and advocate to spread word about robot pets and how they can help both children and the elderly.
