SICO Family Robots are instantly recognizable icons of futurism that suggest technological advancement and savvy, and the excitement of the new. They satisfy the public's fascination for the "world of tomorrow" and their non-human status affords them the rare opportunity to overcome the restrictions of social protocol, bonding with your target audience in the friendliest and most intimate manner, generating consumer loyalty as well as interest for any licensing or merchandising program that your robot may be associated with.
Communication Robots excel in visual and technological presence. IRI robots are built to function with minimal maintenance and to travel overnight to any point in the world. Eloquent spokespersons in any environment, these business/entertainment tools can also support your public image by conducting goodwill visits to local children's hospitals, schools, clinics, etc. Over 30 years ago, IRI pioneered the use of surrogate, interactive robots as diagnostic, prescriptive and remedial tools for the learning disabled, autistic, and mentally challenged persons.
