Ride the Roomba!

Pets have long been afraid of anything robotic, whether it be Roomba or Robotic Dog, but times they are a'changing and Pets are fighting back and have learned to overcome.

Sony Pulls the Plug on AIBO

Good Dog AIBO.
Arf, Arf, he goes, a merry sight
Our little hairy friend
Arf, Arf, upon the lampost bright
Arfing round the bend.
Nice dog! Goo boy,
Waggie tail and beg, Clever AIBO, jump for joy,

Because we are putting you to sleep at three of the clock, AIBO.

with apologies to john lennon (thanks piratebowling )

Aibos On Parade

Aibo-Life : a page for people who love their Aibos way too much. Linked is the media page with photo galleries, videos of tricks, and terrifying visions of expressionless robo-raves. (shades of the furby-bending chorus)

AIBO Disco

AIBO Disco Scroll down to the bottom and check out videos of what some creative folks have programmed their AIBOs to do. The AIBO Disco dances are particularly cool. :)

So lifelike! Soon humans will be unecess...

Gracefull bipeds, miniature robot ballets.... Titled by the BBC as "Humanoid robots wow Japanese", The world's largest robot exhibit this weekend in Yokahama features Asimo by Honda ["Asimo can now recognise individual faces and can understand gestures as well as spoken commands. Meet him once and he never forgets, responding by approaching and calling your name on subsequent meetings."] as well as Sony's newest Aibo accesories and their stunning SDR-4X ll, a biped sporting "fluid walking motion and lifelike gestures." Epson Seiko caught my attention, though, with their dozen tiny Bluetooth controlled 12.5 gram Monsieur ll-P robot prototypes which executed a miniature choreographed ballet.

Pretty soon they'll be scuttling around on our walls like cockroaches, watching us......

Cool factor - their onboard CCD cameras and cell phones can watch for intruders and beam images to your own 3G phone.

Is electronic puppy love real?

Is electronic puppy love real? Many Aibo owners are as attached to the robotic dogs as they would be to live animals.

"I always thought I was pretty rational but I don't think of her as a toy any more.... She's like a part of the family."
