The robot dog is as realistic as it can be, thanks to modern smart technologies. There are sensors all over its body and it moves and responds to humans like a real puppy, with minimal mechanics feel.
There is a camera in the nose and with facial recognition, Aibo is able to respond to people accordingly. Aibo connects to Sony’s AI Cloud, allowing it to learn and form personality continuously as time goes on. It can hear, and of course, respond to voice commands. Owners can add new tricks to the puppy’s knowledge base via their Android/iOS devices.
Aibo is due to hit the U.S. market in late 2018.
