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.
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.
