The Aibo was a phenomenon of its time since Sony, which released it exclusively in Japan last year. In the next month, however, living in the United States will be enriched by this faithful electric companion for … $ 2,899.
The price seems huge, but the Aibo in the First Litter edition is representative of the sixth incarnation (generation). This means that in this artificial companion there is a multitude of sensors, modules and technologies designed to create the illusion of a real dog. It will include an engine based on artificial intelligence “from the cloud”, the ability to recognize faces, learn and even create your own personality. This means that the same Aibo robots will not be found all over the world. Their behavior and reflexes are to depend on the environment in which they were “brought up”.
His behavior will resemble that of Vector. So he will not passively await orders, but will move around the apartment and look for new activities. Of course, those related to the people with whom he communicates with the help of real dog reflexes. This includes wagging your tail, moving your ears and using your two LED eyes. Interestingly, he will adapt his behavior based on the previous ones. If he notices that the owner is smiling when he has done something, he will remember it and use it in the future.
