Robotic dog is like a real dog, but lifeless
Friday, January 18, 2008 - 11:10am
Have you always wanted a dog but were unable to get one due to an allergy, totally mean parents, or some other completely legitimate excuse to keep a lovable bundle of joy out of your life? Well, good news! Technology is now making it possible for you to get a robotic version of man's best friend that improves upon the original by not soiling the carpet, needing to be taken for walks, or having a soul!
This robotic pup from Japan responds to sounds and being pet, barks, and moves sort of like a real dog. It's just like having a real puppy except not as fun. But hey, if you just can't get a real dog and have $270 kicking around, I guess this is your best option.
