CES 2019: SONY’S ROBOT DOG AIBO MAKES SECOND APPEARANCE.

Sony’s robot dog Aibo appeared at CES 2019, the second time the canine with artificial intelligence has graced the Las Vegas conference.
While the price tag for the pooch is a large number of bones — $2,899 USD — Sony employee Leon Michor said the robot companion has sold all 2,000 units available for purchase in the U.S. since it came to market stateside in September. More than 20,000 have been sold in Japan.
“There is talk about having a second litter, Aibo has been very well received in the market,” Michor said.

“A second litter?!” Although the bond between some Aibo owners and their robot dogs definitely qualifies for the recurring “21st Century Relationships” headline.
