It takes a village to raise a robot

BiBli is a new robot prototype which is designed to entertain and educate. It has been developed as part of a collaboration between big industry, educators and parents. Over the last 12 months many students, engineers, and other volunteers have worked towards a common goal: better understand autism.

We have a long way to go still but we’re making great progress towards a low-cost, durable robotic solution for autism.

The prototype allows users to interact in a group setting in the role of a robot and is currently being tested at the Longmont Library in Longmont, Colorado. BiBli will be commercially available in 2016 and a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit autism research in schools and libraries.
