Thanks to Suicide Bots, we just found out about a rumor that the Sony Aibo will be returning in 2007.
For those that are unfamiliar with the Aibo (or Artificial Intelligence roBOt), it was a robot dog far ahead of its time originally introduced by Sony in 1999 packed full of wicked, geek-friendly features. Unfortunately this little guy was discontinued by Sony in 2006. I can go on and on with all of the cool things about the Aibo, but let’s just shoot you the Wiki link to start with and hope that you go from there with some research:)
Supposedly, the new Aibo, dubbed Aibo PS (yes, as in PlayStation) will have the autonomous features as in the original, but also be controllable with your PlayStation 3 controller. You will be able to connect the new Aibo to your PS3 and download the pictures that it takes in with it’s embedded camera. No word yet on if the level of autonomy is the same or better than the original.
