GUIDE: Getting to know Miko

Before we get into how to use Miko, allow us to thank you for joining the Miko family.

We have worked tirelessly to bring you India’s first companion robot, and we will continue to do so to keep improving it.

Your child’s first interaction with Miko will set the foundation for the conversations they will have afterwards. We therefore request you to ensure a few things before their first interaction. First, we request you to ensure, you have a steady internet connection. This is essential for the first interaction to run smoothly. Second, the whole interaction will take all of fifteen minutes, so we request you to take out an appropriate amount of time to get the entire experience of Miko in a single sitting.

Tech Vs. Family Time? Why not both.

From the way we work to the way we socialize, technology has virtually changed every aspect of our society over the past few decades. Take a look at how children today play and interact verses the generation before. You’ll find that more children aged between two to five years of age can run applications and video games but can’t tie their shoelace or ride a bike. Scary right? Well not exactly.

While many parents actually debate whether technology is a boon or a bane, it’s important to recognize that technology is here to stay. In the right environment and with the right supervision and monitoring, kids can actually benefit greatly from their interaction with technology.

When used correctly, technology can actually encourage creativity and dynamic thinking – allowing children to experiment with situations, scenarios and approaches. Many softwares today actively teach math, science, social studies, and other useful topics. Studies reveal that a curriculum designed with the integration of digital media can improve early literacy skills, concentration, and multi-tasking ability.

So the question still arises. Even with the benefits that technology may pose, how can families find that perfect balance between technology usage and family bonding? Instead of differentiating the two, why not put them together?

Miko is a next generation companion robot for children with advanced artificial intelligence technology with significantly enhanced emotional and social intelligent capabilities. Simply put, he’s a robot companion with a one-of-a-kind personality.

Miko’s interactive features provides both advanced companionship with learning and development benefits to children and, at the same time, enables closer interactions between family members. Additionally, with a parental analytics dashboard that allows you to monitor and manage your child’s interactions, Miko always plays by your rules.  

Thus, Miko not only provides children with the benefits of technology, but becomes a strong value addition and not a substitute for the family – one that actively enables parents to participate in their child’s developmental education.
