PURCHASE FEE AND RELEASE DATE
Providing the crowdfunding campaign continues in its success, the Jibo robot

public release, the JIbo robot will be marketed as a high-end tablet computer.
As a result this will inevitably increase the price of the robot, but those looking to
act fast have until 15th August, 2014 to snap up Jibo with a contribution.
