1 November 2017

Japan's Sony Corp unveiled a new robot dog, "Aibo". It equipped with OLED in its eyes, and runs for about two hours after a full charge of three hours. It has two cameras that use facial recognition to identify its owner, and 22 actuator motors for movement.

Owners can also sync "Aibo" with a smartphone application called "My Aibo". That allows them to play with the robot dog remotely. Preorders begin later today for $1,738 plus a basic monthly network plan. Shipments will start on January 11, 2018.
