Ready for circulation is the new robot-dog from Sony and it is designed to live in your home, but also to control your electronics.
The electronic pet could also be “taught” new tricks and respond to your commands, such as a companion pet.
At first glance or first reading it appears to be a modernized version of AIBO, the Sony dog robot, which was first released in 1999.
The company’s new innovation will be released in the spring of 2018, according to the Wall Street Journal, but will be presented at an event in a few days.
According to those who know the plans of the company, electronic pets will be connected to the internet and will have new components designed specifically to make their movements more realistic and allow them to interact with people to a much greater extent than the old version.
Their key feature, however, is the ability to control “smart” devices and other electronics related to your home, such as washing machines, lights and thermostats.
Under this concept, voice devices, such as Amazon Echo and Google Home, could interact with this endeavor.
As with Amazon’s Alexa, you’ll be able to add skills developed by third parties to your robot dog.
Last year’s Sony Managing Director Kazuo Hirai says the company wants to form a cycle of trust with customers, according to the Wall Street Journal.
AIBO, which was released in 2006, was also able to greet the user-boss, sing songs and dance. It is not yet clear whether the AIBO brand will be placed in the new robo-pet.
The 2017 is the year of returns of many retro devices, including Nokia 3310, Tamagotchi and Nintendo SNES Classic.
