  • How long is Kuri’s battery life?

    Kuri's battery will last for about two hours of continuous use. Kuri knows when his battery is low and automatically returns to his home to recharge, and tends to take naps when not much is happening so you might not even notice when Kuri's battery level is low.

  • How did you design Kuri’s beeps and bloops?

    Kuri speaks robot, but if you listen closely, you willl still be able to understand what she’s trying to say. Her chirps and beeps were carefully designed to follow tonal cues from the English language. For example, his “yes” chirp sounds positive, and his “no” beep sounds negative. Kuri’s simple and cute vocabulary was designed to let him express basic ideas in ways that match his helpful and cheerful personality.
