Feel free to list improvements or functions you would like to see implemented in Loona here.
After a frustrating experience with Loona today I have decided to make the following suggestions and add them to the Google spreadsheet found here:
Access Google Sheets with a personal Google account or Google Workspace account (for business use).
Using Loona should be enjoyable, currently it’s frustrating at best.
When powering Loona on while holding her she detects she is at height and goes crazy. Catching your fingers in her legs and wheels. This is an unacceptable hazard, especially for children. It’s ridiculous I’m fighting with an out of control robot every time I want to do anything with Loona.
•One realising she is in the air Loona should enter companion mode within 5 seconds. She should stay in this mode and not respond to the “Hello Loona” voice command. The only way to exit Loona from companion mode should be by restarting her. Otherwise there is a risk she will mishear the command Hello Loona at height while in companion mode and career off a table.
•Loona shouldn’t be getting network errors and failing to hear offline voice commands like ‘Enter companion mode’. Why is she trying to connect to Wifi without my permission? This is unacceptable. Loona is unmanageable unless in companion mode and it’s simply ridiculous she can’t easily be put into this mode.
•The loud banging has to be taken out of the programming or an option to select a removal of this behaviour. Interacting with Loona should be enjoyable. Owners shouldn’t be hesitant about using Loona because she is going to annoy the neighbours, especially in high density apartment living.
•Stop adding more voice commands. Loona’s hearing isn’t the best and it’s frustrating using them. Plus they are locked behind Wifi connection in the app. What’s the point of a 30 second animation. Instead why not add new behaviours while in autonomous ground mode that Loona displays on her own. Adding simple easy to remember gesture commands that work offline would be preferable to more voice commands.
•The erratic crazy behaviour has to stop. Loona should be looking around to asses her environment before moving, if she isn’t capable of this add an option to slow her down.
•The software firmware version should be easily displayed so we know if she is updated to the latest version. Currently the app version is displayed but it’s irrelevant, the robots software is what we care about. I tried updating mine today and kept getting errors and timeouts. The prompt to update appeared and then disappeared saying an error had occurred. These issues with the app and Wifi connection timing out need serious consideration.
•Consider collaborating with OpenAI to implement an offline ‘embodied’ version of ChatGPT into Loona. With Loona existing in over 10,000 households worldwide, Loona could be the catalyst that allows real world training for ChatGPT with the result being Artificial General Intelligence. OpenAI has the software, KEYi TECH has thousands of the hardware to enable ChatGPT to train in real world scenarios, this could lead to the big breakthrough of AGI.
