MIOpup robo-dog emerges to serve Aibo's abandoned humans

All you Aibo fans out there crying your eyes out because the Sony robo-dog has been discontinued can finally dry your tears. A new electronic mutt from Sega called the MIOpup hopes to take up where Aibo left off. Although the MIOpup isn't as visually slick as its predecessor, the robo-dog features a couple of neat tricks. It can tell you how it's feeling with over 100 "eye-con" flashes, can wag its tail, wiggle its ears and even plays a tune when the mood is right. Clearly the MIOpup doesn't pack the same processing power as the Aibo, but while we wait for Sony to reconsider, at just $50 (here) this isn't a bad alternative.
