The Loop - Overview

Jibo’s loop is made up of the people Jibo can recognize by face and voice. His loop is his family.

Jibo’s owner (whoever sets him up with WiFi via the Jibo app) is automatically in the loop. The owner can use the Jibo app to loop others in. (See Add someone to the loop.) Adults with email addresses will also be invited to install the app. Anyone who has been looped in can introduce themselves to Jibo. Each Jibo can only have one loop, but there is no limit to how many loops one person can join.

Jibo’s owner can loop in minors under the age of 13 with parental permission. (See Add a child to the loop.) The parent/guardian assumes responsibility for that minor’s actions, and must state that they have the legal right to claim responsibility/guardianship over that minor. When a minor is looped in, they can only engage with Jibo via the robot (they are not legally allowed to install the app). In all other respects, the minor is just like everyone else in the loop--  they take up one of the 16 slots, can talk to Jibo, can use skills, etc.
