Sony's new Aibo robot dog will melt your heartWe get a first look at Sony's new Aibo. It won't replace your dog, but you'll still want one even if it's $1,700.
[MUSIC] Brian Tong here, at CES2018. And right next to me, the adorable, the all new Aibo from Sony. Now we know they released it out in Japan. It's set to be available in the U.S. right now. But let's talk about how amazing this is. There's a lot of technology packed in here. And if you wanna talk about artificial intelligence in something that I want, like a real robot that I want, It's the Aibo. Check this out. 4,000 parts. There's actually 22 actuators or think of it as motors or joints that are moving to bring this Aibo to life. Its eyes are OLED screens, and you can see they have articulation. They express themselves. Also there's three areas where you can actually touch the Aibo, on its head, on its back, and under its chin. And as you touch it, it kind of reinforces and shows love and emotion, the Aibo will react to that as well. You'll also, if you look really carefully at the nose there's an actual camera in there, and what that camera can do is it can detect, Who it's looking at, as well as the voice. So if you have multiple family members it can learn to respond to them. And then on its back side, they call it a slam camera. It's right at the top of its tail. As it moves around it uses this camera to pretty much map out your home, like the ceiling, the area, so it knows where it is. It also helps it guide it to its charging station. So this [UNKNOWN] has 120 minutes of juice. When it runs all the way down, it's three hours to actually charge it and bring it back up to speed. But this is just, I mean adorable. Look at how it moves, its articulation, its expressions. It's going to be $1,700 US. They have not announced when it will be available for US customers. But there you go, a first look at the adorable Aibo. I love it, I gotta have it now. [MUSIC]
