So you have an awesome MP3 collection. Who cares if no one’s dancing to it. Well, with Shimi, you have a dancing buddy no matter what tune is spinning. This is ‘a real robot with artificial intelligence that analyzes music it plays through his speaker-ears and generates real-time unique dance moves to bring the music to life in a fun, cute way’. What’s more: ‘Shimi will always know where you are in the room and point the speakers to you’. Yup. Their Kickstarter is up to $33,000 raised, but they have a long way to go still until they meet their target of $120,000. If you can’t live without a dancing robot companion, pledge now and get this thing built.
