Robot Pets

  • Pleo: A Baby Dinosaur - as of mid-2008, the Pleo seems to be the top robot of choice. Just search YouTube for "Pleo" to see a wide array of videos like this one.
  • Pleo Meets Aibo - Aibo was a robot dog created by Sony but they have recently stopped making them. They were at one point the top-of-the-line robot pet. Even on eBay, the Aibo sells for between $1,000 - $2,000!
