Japanese technology giant Sony has officially unveiled its next-generation robot at the CES, 2018 platform. The sophisticated piece of machine surprisingly moves and acts just like the real creature. To recall, the company had retired the original Aibo back in 2006. At that time, they did not provide any information regarding whether or not they plan on bringing the mechanical canine back. Little did we know, they were working on developing a 2.0 version of it.
According to a report published by New York Post, the Aibo robot which was displayed at CES, 2018 featured a new design and expressive LED eyes. The robot is taught a vast number of movements. It is even able to learn new tricks if the owners apply enough effort to teach it.
Sony has launched its Aibo robot dog only in the Japanese market as of now. The base model of the robotic dog costs roughly $1,760. Meanwhile, the report by New York Post goes on to point out the increasing dominance that robotics has on the market. “A Las Vegas jiggle joint has installed a pair of mechanized pole dancers to bump and grind on stage for computer nerds who wander over from this week’s CES technology bash,” the report reads.
“Come watch sparks fly as the Robo Twins shake their hardware and leave everyone wondering if those double Ds are real or made in ‘Silicone’ Valley,” the Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club said in an announcement, inviting tech geeks to ogle and salivate over the stiletto-heeled cyborgs.
It is also interesting to note just how dominant this year’s CES has been especially by different products such as Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Intelligence. More and number of companies are striving towards achieving this deed by integrating the technologies into their products.
