Shimi: the first musically intelligent robotic speaker dock

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.

Recorded a cool, fun, funny, or inspiring video (or even better, all of the above!) that you'd love to have more people see? Well, we'd like to see it. And if we dig it, we'll turn it into a Found At E Minor (FAEM) video for our Facebook audience to enjoy. Check out this awesome recent example and submit your videos here!
