WATCH: Sony unveils rebooted robot dog Aibo who 'barks', whimpers and responds to commands

Sony has unveiled a rebooted robot dog that it hopes might prove to be a digital companion for the elderly and the lonely.

Aibo ‘barks’, whimpers and responds to human touches and commands.

The electronic canine, which costs €3,000, is also capable of visually distinguishing its owner due to facial recognition technology and ‘learns’ your behaviour, due to artificial intelligence on board.
