Brian heater on what’s old is what’s new again.
Sony’s getting the old crew back together for one more job… the electronics giant is reuniting the team between its beloved, bygone robotic dog Aibo, in order to develop a new version of the bot for the age of smart assistants.
Don’t we have those already?
The dog is said to be the first of a number of consumer offerings from the company designed to help Sony catch up with AI-powered offerings from the likes of Amazon, Google and Apple.
Why not just make a robotic dog that barks and talks like Alexa?
