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.
This model requires an always-on internet connection to function fully and comes with a SIM card and monthly subscription service to support interaction and learning in the cloud. This model of Aibo has a much cuter appearance than most of the other models. The Aibo ERS-1000 can recognize up to 100 faces, and can memorize a customizable trick, and responds to over 50 voice commands. It costs around $3,000.
Colors: ivory white (2018), choco edition (2019), caramel edition (2020), black sesame edition (2021).
Included: Pink ball, Charging Station (Charging stand, Charging mat), AC adaptor, Power cord, and 3 year AI cloud service.
