Aibo gets new pals
Sony has just introduced two brand new robotic pets. Dubbed "Latte" and "Macaron" - officially ERS-310 and ERS-311 -, these mechanical puppies are part of the Aibo brand serie.
Like their old "brother", the robots are able to express "emotions", take pictures or sing songs. They presents two ways of "living": the Happy mode (interact with them to make them "happier") and the House Guard mode (let alone, they take picture when something is moving in the house). A third one, the Media Link mode, allowing the robots to react to news, should be added soon.
These smart toys are available worldwide and cost about $1,000.
