Rumour has it that the Aibo robot dog development is being resuscitated by Sony’s PlayStation division, in an attempt to increase PS3’s arsenal.
Aibo PS would appear with its own avatar within Home, PS3’s online interactive world, and react in the real world just as it will on screen. It would also be controllable using a PSP via Wi-Fi, with the dog’s camera image viewable on the PSP screen anywhere in the world with a hotspot.
With a laser beam attached to its head, this could be a great metal watchdog. We can't wait.
