aibo Robot Companion

aibo Robot Companion

aibo is a one-of-a-kind robot companion that performs tricks and uses artificial intelligence to learn its owners and form a friendship with them over time.  I first encountered one of the beta versions of aibo ages ago and aibo has dramatically evolved.

A one-of-a-kind companion – As it interacts with people over time, aibo’s behavior slowly changes and adapts in response to its unique environment.

Built with Sony’s latest technology, aibo is brought to life with a wide range of sensors, cameras and actuators while aibo’s adaptable behavior is made possible through artificial intelligence technology.
