Sony’s iconic robotic dog Aibo can now dance, find a bone and recognize people in your family. The revamped version of the robotic dog, which Sony first launched in the 1990s, costs ¥198,000 (about $1,740).
Sony has made a slew of upgrades to Aibo. Unlike previous models, it has OLED eyes, which make it look more realistic and display more nuanced expressions.
Aibo is outfitted with new artificial intelligence capabilities, such as developing its own personality over time. It has facial recognition so it can detect different members of your family and can tell people apart from an object like a bone. If someone in your house pets Aibo the most, it will interact with them the most.
