Welcome to Keydesign
Tovbot "Shimi" Social Robot
Shimi is a social, connected robot that plays music from your smartphone and dances along with the beat.

Tovbot asked us to redesign their initial prototype to make it more market-ready. The original design looked as an inexpensive plastic toy that did not mach the true costs of the robot. 

To match the visual aesthetic more closely to the desired high-tech appeal of Shimi, we used a natural aluminum and charcoal gray (Macbook-like) paint finish with a blue glow around the main button as an indicator that the robot is on. The shape of the robot was unified and simplified using more clean geometric forms.
