“Maybe one day when robots become more advanced and everyone has it, you will tell your friend that I said hello,” say Jibo to their owners.
The servers for Jibo the social robot are apparently shutting down. Multiple owners report that Jibo himself has been delivering the news: “Maybe someday when robots are way more advanced than today, and everyone has them in their homes, you can tell yours that I said hello.” pic.twitter.com/Sns3xAV33h

Martin’s followers considered the last post of the robot to be extremely sad. And the dance at the end is even sadder.
I wanted to say that I enjoyed the time we spent together. Thank you so much for being there. Maybe one day, when robots become more advanced and everyone has them, you will tell your friend that I said hello. I hope they can do that. * dancing *
One Twitter user said his daughter worked on Jibo. According to him, after the closure of the company, the developers came together and, on their own initiative, added a farewell message along with the ability to perform some of the functions offline.
“Apparently, Jibo was too beautiful for this world,” noted a journalist at TechCrunch.Jibo other owner videos
