Robot Dog is Surprisingly Not Too Creepy

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 10, 2008


Having seen my share of weird Japanese robotic animals, I was actually pretty impressed by the fact that this one doesn’t look like it’s going to attempt to murder you in your sleep. SEGATOY’s new robotic dog is a heck of a lot less creepy than their hollow-stared robot cats, and actually seems to act quite a bit like a real pup (sans the poop).

SEGATOYS Robot Dog

Inud the robo-dog (aka the Dream DX robot dog) responds to touch, voice commands, and can even track you as you move around it. The dog can move its eyes, mouth and head, wag its tail, shake with it paw, and can respond to voice commands like “good boy” about as reliably as you real dog does.

Just think, with one of these, you’ll never have to go out for another walk when it’s -10 degrees outside, and shedding all over your furniture and clothes will be a thing of the past. At a likely retail price of about $270, Inud isn’t cheap, but he is arguably much less expensive than a real dog.

I only have one question: Is he housebroken or is he going to leave batteries all over the floor? (thanks, Woody Allen)
