This is going to be so cool, and I’m very happy preorders start next week, but I’m wondering if we’re gonna know what is is, because I still am not really sure what it is. But after all I like mysteries…
Welcome to the EMO Community Forums and also AIBI, @Axl0 . . . there will be more information coming out soon, but you can see what has been released so far with the most recent two videos by @edward here:
Theoretically, according to what living.ai has said, AIBI will function almost the same as EMO, with the only difference being that AIBI doesn’t have feet for dancing and walking. They might also add more new features.
“Yes! AIBI can not only interact with EMO but also with us too.”
I’ve just thought about something. I’m gonna order some AIBIs as soon as they come out, but I just realised that maybe the charging bases are gonna come separately. AIBI cannot turn without his base but maybe for example, as the bases are very small, you could buy some additional ones separately end put them at different places : one next to EMO, one on the desk… And so you could switch AIBI between his bases. That would be very cool
I’ve moved your post to this thread as per your request to be on the pre-order list. According to the latest information from Living.ai, they will open and commence the pre-order phase exclusively here direct on the https://living.ai/store/ during the week of December 11th to 16th, 2023. We’re all excited for that day, so stay tuned…"
My wild guess is that once they start the pre-order day, then will likely remain as it is in the meantime.
In my opinion, they will assess the number of interested people, possibly in terms of pre-orders, before proceeding with production.
I’ve heard that production, including quality checks, may take around 3-4 months before shipments begin. However, this is speculative, and the actual timeline may vary.
