Indian consumer electronics start-up emotix, unveiled its latest offering, Miko 2, a personal robot for children. The robot aims to help modern parents in early education and development of children by engaging the child in “playful learning.” The robot can initiate and hold long conversations with kids, imparting knowledge based on academic curriculum and general facts about the world. Say "Hey Miko" to the robot and it starts a conversation on its own in an emotive voice unique to it. The system has been further powered by a proprietary emotional intelligence engine developed in-house by emotix, enabling the robot to not only identify and remember the child's moods but also adapt to their personality.

Miko which was the first product developed by the company about a year back, and now it gets a new makeover. The changes are not just cosmetic as Miko 2 can see, hear, sense, express, talk, recognise faces, remember names, identify moods, initiate a conversation and learn from its own environment to intuitively develop a bond with the child. the new version requires a one-time Wi-Fi set-up to be done through the Miko 2 app by the parent, post which, the child can talk with the robot directly through voice commands. Miko 2 sports a new HD camera that does face recognition, can hear through active noise cancellation microphones and has edge sensors that save it from falling off edges such as tables and stairs. Miko 2 comes with a “Time of Flight” sensor that enables the robot to sense the surroundings and make decisions. The product now has a better battery life and improved display and sound quality. 

One of the disruptive moves by emotix is the decision to open up the platform of Miko 2. This allows third-party developers to publish their content on Miko 2 and reach out to users of the robot. Miko 2 is priced in India at Rs 24,999 and will be exclusively available across all Hamleys India stores from December 15th, 2018 to January 15th, 2019 and thereafter will be made available across all leading consumer electronics and toy stores.
