Smaller, Cheaper, More Annoying Robotic Dogs

from the they-just-keep-multiplying dept

Thought that $1,500 Aibo robotic dog was a bit too expensive? How about a smaller, cuter, friendlier version for just $850? That’s what Sony is pitching now, which is sure to piss off those who shelled out twice as much for the bigger, uglier, and not quite as smart version. I’m still somewhat surprised that people actually buy these things. Seems like a pretty expensive, pretty fragile toy, when you could just go out and get a real dog instead.
