MEET Nicobo

WHY?

Panasonic’s newest robot cat, Nicobo, is a quaint little companion that acts like a normal cat. It blinks its eyes, turns around, wags its tail, and even farts when it feels the need to. On the surface, it’s a cute tootin’ cat that looks like something a child would make. Underneath the surface, however, is where we see AI taking root in fun consumer products. Coming equipped with cameras, sensors, and microphones, Nicobo can identify your face and mood, turn towards you, and feel you petting it. With only about 320 units available, Nicobo is a deceptively unique and fun robot just waiting for the opportunity to fart with you in your home.
