We had to include this adorable Bocco, which Orange Gate founder Janneke Ritchie greeted at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Vegas this week. Notice the similarity with our Orange Gate robot graphic?

Bocco is designed to keep families in touch with each other when they are apart, providing parents the ability to keep in communication with their children and monitor the home as well. Bocco’s creators, Yukai Engineering, conceive of this little robot as a “modern-day “Zashiki-warashi”, or the guardian spirit for the family.
