Through Indiegogo, the robot has already surpassed its $100,000 goal and at the time of this article has made over $600,000. If you want to be one of the first to get JIBO, it only takes a pledge of $499. For those who are interested in adding to the software, get the developer edition for $599. Considering the design would be great for kids, the campaign also allows you to donate towards giving a JIBO to the Boston Children's Hospital so it can help kids and their families—either by giving $80 (every five donations equals one JIBO given) or by going for one of the "Buy 1 Give 1" deals for $799 and $899.
The developer version of JIBO is slated to ship around in the third quarter of 2015 (July, August, or September) and the next shipment will arrive by the holidays. Public release isn't planned until 2016.
