Sony Aibo ERS-1000

Published: July 31, 2021

The Sony AIBO is a series of robotic dogs and pets. The firm announced a prototype in mid-1998 and the first consumer model was introduced on 11 May 1999. New models were released every year until 2006. Other inspirations included lion-cubs and space explorer, but only the Aibo ERS-7 and ERS-1000 versions was explicitly a "robotic dog". On 26 January 2006 Sony announced that it would discontinue AIBO and several other products, but in November 2017, the firm announced a new generation of AIBO after 11 years. The fourth generation model, the Aibo ERS-1000, was launched in Japan on 11 January 2018. Through deep learning, this model is able to grow over time and form a unique personality through everyday interactions.
