Paw patrol: Sony offers robocop dog at home

Sony’s puppy-sized robot dog aibo, equipped with cameras, artificial intelligence and Internet capability, can now remotely check up on family members, children or even pets, the Japanese electronics giant said.
The 30-centimetre (one-foot) robopup with flapping ears and cutting-edge LED eyes will roam around the home at pre-designated times looking for family members.
However, the latest canine tech does not come cheap, with a single dog costing nearly $3,000 for a three-year package, including software services such as data storage. The owner will receive progress reports via smartphone in the service offered from next month in conjunction with home security company Secom.
