Would you like a social robot?

I remember the 1960’s program Lost in Space with the robot who went with them and helped them especially by keeping an eye on the young boy.  The robot would call out “danger Will Robinson, danger!” (add some suspenseful music)…

And there’s been other robots especially in the Star Wars movies!  R2D2 for example with his littlle buzz and whistles.

But what’s happening in our world – here’s an interesting video from a lady seeking crowd funding (and she’s now oversubscribed) to produce what is called JIBO.  Not sure if those letters stand for something but this small table top robot has some uncanny ability.

My question is can it tell Will Robinson that there is danger!?!!
