Neil, the Little Explorer: Your child’s robot companion
Working parents are often unable to spend enough time with their kids, and as a result they are unaware of their childrens’ real interests. In a simple but effective way, Neil, the Little Explorer, can help such parents.
Neil is a robotic toy that keeps your child company all day long. An associated mobile app lets parents watch what their kids learn, and understand patterns about their likes and dislikes. They get to know their child’s curiosity towards a particular subject like new places, planets or biology. These patterns also help Neil to share apt information related to the child’s interests, so the interactions are more engaging.
Press a button at any time and it will share a factoid (wiki as they call it) in a very conversational way. Simple button controls let Neil know if the child loved it or wants to move to the next one, revisit the previous one or get a wiki related to the current location. While the conversation is in English by default, you can buy additional language packages if you wish.
Created by the Another Circus Design Agency, Neil levitates a bit once in a while to remind the child of its presence. It has a pleasant LED light that lights up the child’s room at night. Charging is as simple as placing Neil on its ‘planet’ or base station.
