Astro! Here Boy!
Ok... This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. A pet robot dog. 100+ word vocabulary. It plays soccer with a little pink ball, and love flash cards. It's like your very own recharble Vox! And speaking of that, it "sleeps" every night in it's recharger. It recognizes it's owners face and voice, and responds differently to him than others. It 'feels' organic touch, and responds to praise and affection. The dog has several seperate emotions ranging from fear to anger to happiness. He links in with your wireless LAN so you can control him. You can set his clock to control when he sleeps and when he wakes up. He'll even wake you up if you want.
It's like a puppy... except it doesn't crap all over the house. They sell 'em for $1400 on Ebay... hrmmm... I'm thinking yes. Julie's been wantin' a little yappy dog.
