Since the launch of this crowdsourcing campaign, Xibot has been featured on Indiegogo's newsletter and reached its target goal in less than 36 hours, going on to raise almost USD 25,000 in just five days. Xibot interacts with her owner in a number of innovative ways, for example gently waking them up in the morning, filling them in on the latest weather forecast and reminding them of the important things they need to do that day. Her voice-activated command function also responds directly to questions and when the owner is away, Xibot will monitor the house.
