PiBo was designed with customer service in mind. It can be used as an alarm clock, to tell you about the weather and top news articles of the day, to play music, to snap photos, and to remind you of impending appointments. Thanks to a separate app store, its capabilities can be readily enhanced to incorporate home security integration, voice and facial recognition, and more. If you have the necessary expertise, you can even code your own programs and features. Voice commands, QR-embedded flash cards, and the PiBo dashboard app are all options for controlling PiBo (available for both iOS and Android).
