KEYi Technology, a consumer robotics company, today introduced Loona, a robotic pet, to their existing line of consumer robots, along with a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the new “Petbot” of the future.  

According to a press release, Loona offers a wide range of capabilities. Through advanced technology, animation design and artificial intelligence, Loona functions with realistic pet behaviors and motion performances.

Loona also includes a range of games and additional features, along with an approachable design for children.

With its 3D ToF (time-of-flight) camera, Loona can roam freely using four-wheel and two-wheel motions through its proprietary self-balancing design. Additionally, Loona features a high-performance CPU processor, allowing the chip to perform 54 trillion neural network convolution calculations per second, equating to one-quarter of a PC’s calculation capability.

Founded in 2014, KEYi Technology is dedicated to creating robotic products for personal and educational play that are affordable for all. KEYi’s premiere product, ClicBot, was the first complete consumer modular robotics kit with the ability to be assembled in thousands of different combinations, helping children learn how to code and explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) at home.

  1. I would love to live in a world where all pets are adopted by loving homes and treated well. I think robotic pets can be good training for those who want a pet, including determining whether they really have the time or patience. They are also good sometimes for people who would love a pet but can’t have one where they live. There are also some other key benefits of robotic pets, but, I agree, that there’s nothing like the real thing.
