Aibo is a friendly robotic dog whose personality and behavior evolves over time. It can recognize its owner's face, detect smiles and words of praise, and learn new tricks. And of course, it loves to be petted.

Did You Know?
Things Aibo loves: attention, and anything pink. Things Aibo doesn't love: heights and tight spaces.
Aibo can use its AI to learn to recognize up to 100 different faces.
Like a real puppy, each Aibo develops differently based on its everyday interactions and environment. No two Aibo personalities will be exactly the same.
Tell Aibo to "learn this" and it will give you its paws so you can demonstrate fancy paw dancing moves for it to memorize.
Ask Aibo to "sing a song," and it will sit down and sing the jingle from previous generations of the robot.
