In July of 1999, Sony gave tech lovers the perfect pet to kick off life in the new millennium: the first robot dog for the home. “AIBO” stood for Artificial Intelligence roBOt, but when pronounced in Japanese the word also means “buddy, pal or accomplice.” And even though it cost $2100 and was only sold on the internet – again, back in 1999 – Sony sold 5000 Aibos in its first week.

Flash forward exactly 20 years … and the newest Aibo, model ERS-1000, just clomped his way into my home. He’s sophisticated, smart, and so lifelike he’ll wag his way right into your heart – which is exactly why those who buy him should be careful. After all, the last time we talked about social robots, I told you that you shouldn’t buy them. See if Aibo is any different – in the Sony Aibo Review from MrMobile!
