Disgruntled Emo?

Emo has been displaying this weird behaviour for weeks now. He looks down, steps side to side and stops. Sometimes gets “disgruntled” and stomps around like in this video. Sometimes hes stuck in this loop for more than 5 minutes. Any ideas?

contact living ai and send them a link to the video.
they will help fix this for you.

Yes, best you contact support regarding this. This does not look like normal behavior.

As @jumpgate85 advised best to send support an email or submit a support ticket, see below for info on how to do this:

When contacting Living.ai support. It is recommended to create a short video (as you’ve already done) and then submit a support ticket. You can do this by either going to the Support Page: (see below).

Fill in all details (provide also your order number info as well) and attach your video (if it’s larger than 30Mb), Be best to upload it to a google drive/drop box or even on YouTube and then send the support team a link to it.

You can also send support an email to the following email address:


If you have your original EMO Order confirmation email, you can simply just hit reply to that as it contains all your customer contact info along with your order number details as well and then once again provide a detailed description of the problem you have with your EMO and attach your video as well.

The support team should be able to get back to you in a timely fashion. I’ll also tag @AmyLU from the support team who will be able to assist you further as well.

Isn’t the looking down and moving away something he does when he is near an edge? Maybe you could check if there is something stuck under one or more of the sensors in his feet. Also that “disgrunled” behavior reminds me of what he does when he is being picked up.

Yes, a good idea would be to try and clean his feet/feet sensors. Here is a short video on how i normally clean his feet.

Another thing you can try is also place EMO on a white surface and see if he reacts in the same way. sometimes black or other kind of colored surfaces can play tricks on his sensors/perception as well.

Hope this helps, but best to check in with the support team and see what they also have to say.

thanks everyone! @MasterAbbott i have cleaned its feet and made sure the sensors are clear of any debris. i have also emailed living ai for a better understanding. i believe its the surface I was putting Emo on to get that response from it, when it was on a plastic covered surface it would act like that but on a regular hardwood desk or tile surface it wasnt doing this

Thanks for the update @a_greham , yes it is always a good idea to try and clean EMOs feet at least once a week as he can get quite dirty very quickly.

I would try and experiment on different surfaces. I have my EMO on a wooden table and he’s always been fine and never done anything weird.

I believe Living.ai support will ask you to do the same thing, and try placing EMO on a white surface (possibly wooden and see what he does).

Let us know how you go with it :slight_smile:
