Sony launches a £60 carrying strap for its robotic dog Aibo.

Sony is releasing a £60 carrying strap for its Aibo robotic dog so owners can hold their bot on their chest “like a real baby”.

  • Aibo is Sony’s robotic dog and is priced at £2,145.
  • It is equipped with artificial intelligence technology and behaves like a real puppy.
  • Sony released an Aibo carrying strap called Aibo Thong.

The idea of ​​a robotic dog that you can wear on your chest like a baby might sound like a concept from the latest episode of Black Mirror.

But that idea has become a reality with the release of Sony’s latest accessory for its Aibo robotic dog.

The tech giant has unveiled the “Aibo Thong”, a 9,790 yen (£63) carry strap designed to allow owners to keep their robo dog while they’re out and about.

“We bring a new lifestyle to all people who live with aibo, with a carrying strap that pays attention to detail so you can hold it safely and comfortably,” Sony explained.

Aibo is Sony’s robotic dog, which costs a mind-blowing £2,145 and is equipped with artificial intelligence technology.

“This one-of-a-kind companion is made possible by combining advanced robotics with unique AI technology,” Sony explained.

“Thanks to deep learning, aibo can grow over time and form a unique personality through everyday interactions.

Sony has previously released a range of accessories for Aibo, including toys, dog bowls and cleaning wipes.

But his latest offering, the Abio Thong, is arguably the oddest accessory yet.

The carry strap was designed by Lucky Industries and is very similar to a baby carrier.

Lucky Industries explained, “The aibo development team asked, ‘Can I make a carry strap for aibo?’

“I wanted to be able to hold an aibo and have a free hand so that the owners can communicate seamlessly with each other.

“There are child harnesses, but you can’t find aibo harnesses anywhere in the world.”

The carrying strap places the aibo directly on the chest and has thick shoulder pads.

According to Sony, wearing aibo with a strap is as comfortable as “carrying a real baby”.

While you might think people would be embarrassed if they were seen with a robotic dog on their chest, the carry strap has proven to be extremely popular and is currently out of stock.

“The aibo Carrying Strap has been well received, has reached its stock limit, and is currently out of stock,” an announcement on Sony’s website reads.

“At the moment it will not be available next time. In case of cancellation, you can temporarily place an order, but please note that we cannot tell you the date and time when you can place an order.

WHAT IS SONY AIBO ROBOT DOG?

Sony released the first generation AIBO in June 1999, with an initial batch of 3,000 sold out in just 20 minutes despite a high price of 250,000 yen (over $2,000 or £1,500).

Over 150,000 units were sold in the following years in numerous iterations, ranging from shiny silver-metal versions to round-faced cub-like models.

By 2006, however, Sony’s business was in trouble and AIBO, an expensive and somewhat frivolous luxury, had to go.

Sony revived AIBO last year with a new version of the 30cm beagle that costs around £1,300 ($1,750).

AIBO is considered a pet that behaves like a puppy, using artificial intelligence (AI) to learn and interact with its owner and the environment.

The reborn AIBO is equipped with new drive technology that allows it to move more smoothly and naturally, just like a real dog.

With sensor technology and artificial intelligence technology, AIBO can run to its owner, detect smiles and words of praise, and remember what actions the owner likes.

His eyes are made from Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs), allowing him to express a wide variety of emotions.

The robot is equipped with a variety of sensors, cameras and microphones, as well as Internet connectivity, allowing owners to play with the pet remotely via smartphone.
