Eilik robot price and review!

Eilik robot from EnergizeLab is companion robotic toy with a face similar to Vector and Cozmo and Loona Robot . Eilik best place is in your desk and will entertain you or your kids during the day! The robot cost around 159$ and comes in blue / pink / orange color ( the new DG version ) . Its a nice toy oriented for kids and younger kids, with a loud personality ( similar  to a Furby gen-2) that may not be suitable for adults and work environments.


What is inside the robot :

Eilik has two touch area ( belly and top of head) , arms and head that moves and double as a input  to navigate in the “menu” using the face as screen selector . Each Eilik is able to communicate to other kind via the magnetic Pogo Pins ( for coordinated animations ). A nice note for privacy-related functionality : the robot doesn’t have any camera or mic .


New updates  comes via Wifi (  they usually bring new functionality, bugfixes  and games) , this usually require to stop the gameplay for couple of hours till the robot is fully updated.  The robot cannot be removed from the base ( The base of part of the robot).

Emotions Engine

The behaviour of the robot is changes depending on its current interaction/happiness state via so called “Emotion Engine” . All the behaviours and animations are described via this state-automation machine graph below ( sort of rudumental AI) , this parkle some “life” in the robot . However as today Eilik is not equipped with any true AI, and not able to interact further than action/reaction and perform some games.
