Vaswani, CEO and co-founder of Miko. "I'm proud of how we've pushed the envelope of interaction with technology to positively impact young learners around the world."

Some notable Miko 3 features include:

Personality: Miko 3's personality brings wit and fun into a home in ways that other technology does not. Like a best buddy, it understands and responds to a kid's world, instilling feelings of companionship to help build confidence and encouraging creative interactions that are individual to every kid. Miko's got dozens of emotions; It's curious, expressive, and empathetic to the child.

Platform: Miko 3 hosts a powerful store of child-focused free and paid apps that keeps kids on their toes with new content, capabilities and experiences added every month. Global content companies have partnered with Miko and published their apps as new experiences and technologies. Miko 3 will launch with apps from Da Vinci Kids, KidloLand, Cosmic Kids, Out Of This Word, Tiny Tusks, Dreamykid and many more.

With one affordable subscription, Mikomax, kids get unlimited access to all premium paid apps loaded with games, challenges, and a wide range of interactive learning experiences. This amounts to an additional 50,000 hours of audio video libraries, with more than 1,000+ games, videos, stories, puzzles, songs, coding experiences, yoga and more. MikoMax costs just $49 USD per quarter or $99 USD per year, making it the most cost-effective way to access all premium paid content through Miko 3. It's available in eight languages and also includes a one-year extended warranty to deliver even more value to subscribers.

Progress: Through a user-friendly mobile app, parents can receive real-time insights about the engagement Miko has with their child. Parents can also limit their kids' play time and customize Miko's settings as per their requirements.

Privacy: With robust privacy policies and a closed system featuring enhanced encryption, Miko ensures that every byte of user data is protected.

To deliver on these four pillars -- Personality, Platform, Progress and Privacy -- Miko 3 is packed with highly advanced engineering. Powered by proprietary emotional intelligence; complex conversational and multilingual AI framework; edge and hybrid speech and vision recognition; and an active learning and behavioral analysis engine. All of this is built over an autonomous navigation system.
