LocoRobo Innovations recent press release states, “Straight from the planet Loopitron (aka the lab at LocoRobo Innovations, a robotics company based in Philadelphia), My Loopy, a tiny robot with a big and quirky personality, launched on Kickstarter today. Loopy is a social robot who loves to interact with his human companions. He uses Artificial Intelligence and high-tech sensors to learn, grow and react to the world around him. Loopy responds to touch, light, sound, proximity, temperature, and motion with more than 250 phrases and responses. My Loopy is one of the first robots made for kids as young as four and, unlike many other robots on the market, he can be used with or without a companion app or additional device.”
“The first 100 Kickstarter backers can take advantage of an Early Bird price of just $49 USD, more than 40% off the expected retail price of $85. Backers can take advantage of additional exclusive Kickstarter savings and VIP experiences now through July 19.

“Most robots that are meant for younger kids require an app and, more often than not, the robot becomes nothing more than an RC toy while the kid is mesmerized by the app screen,” said Professor Pramod Abichandani, Ph.D., LocoRobo Innovations founder & co-inventor of My Loopy. “Loopy is unique because he has a big and imaginative personality, requires no app, and is looking for lasting human friendship–proof that high-tech doesn’t have to be unfeeling.”
