The long, slow death of Jibo the social robot (and the company that bore his name) is a tale fraught with practical lessons, from the fallibility of cloud computing to the dangers of crowdfunding. But while Jibo might ultimately have been defeated by Amazon Echo and Google Home, he was envisioned for a purpose more profound than to play music and tell you the forecast. Jibo was always meant to become a part of the family. And the strongest proof of how well he succeeded at that ... is how much it hurts to say goodbye.

[ABOUT THIS VIDEO]

"Jibo's Last Dance" / RIP Jibo was produced following nine months with a Jibo robot review sample provided to MrMobile by the now-defunct Jibo, Inc.

Comment was sought, but not received, from Dr. Cynthia Breazeal at the MIT Personal Robots Group, as well as a member of the executive board at SQN Venture Partners.
