Focuspeck writes; Sony has announced that it has bred the newest model of the robotic dog AIBO, and says it will be available in the US in November. The new AIBO features the ability to play digital music, record video, take pictures and respond to 100+ words or phrases. The robot's tricks include a house sitting mode (record time lapse video), play mode (fetch bone or ball) and a new scheduler mode that works with Microsoft Outlook to inform you of your appointments. Tactile touch sensors on the back, head, and chin also allow for more organic interaction, and also contribute to its growth development. It also has a hipper look and faster response times. The new AIBO will cost about $1,899 ($100 more then last years model). For more details on the ERS-7M2, check out this EE Times article or have a look at PDFs of the user guides and other documentation.
