BOCCO: The family robot that brings your loved ones closer

Who is BOCCO?

BOCCO is a wi-fi connected robot designed to keep you connected to your loved ones while you are away from home.

Send a voice message from the BOCCO app, and he’ll play it back at home. Speak into BOCCO, and he’ll send a message to other family members’ smartphones. You can also send a text message from the app which BOCCO will read out loud.

Also included is a motion sensor which you be installed on a door to receive notifications of when your children arrive home from school or when your grandparents head outside.

Because BOCCO is simple for anybody to use, he can be given to children or the elderly. He’s a great alternative to a smartphone, which can be addictive to young children and complicated for the elderly.

BOCCO has a playful appearance and a design based on voice and sound. By making him a part of your life back at home, you’ll be a step closer to feeling the communication with those you love.

Who makes BOCCO?

BOCCO is a product of Yukai Engineering, our small robotics startup based in Tokyo, Japan, and made up of designers and engineers who have a passion for creating robots. Our company has 5 years of experience in prototyping, product design, and mass production. We have developed our own products, as well as products for other companies.

Yukai’s mission is to use robotics to make our daily lives more fun and fulfilling. Our goal is to introduce communication robots to every home, and BOCCO is one of our very first steps to reaching our goal.

The schedule

We’ve almost finished designing the production version of BOCCO, and will begin shipping the Japanese version in May 2015. We expect to ship the international version during August 2015.

リスクと課題

We are modifying BOCCO’s design to comply with wireless and electronics regulations in both the US and EU. This is our major challenge and there may be a chance of delay in shipment if acquiring these certifications takes longer than expected.

For manufacturing, there are sometimes delays if electronic parts are unavailable at that time or if the factory we work with does not have available resources at that time.

With years of experience in manufacturing various products for domestic and international markets, we do not anticipate delays. However, if delays are expected, we will inform our customers immediately.
