A robot’s best friend

Sony AIBOTired of frequent walks and dog hair on the couch? Sony’s robotic dog, AIBO, may be for you.

If you’re thinking of the remote-controlled dogs you’ve seen at Toys ‘R Us, think again. AIBO is a sophisticated and autonomous robot that can hear and see; it also has a sense of balance and touch. Eighteen specialized motors allow such dog-like motions as rolling over, scratching, playing dead, and chasing a pink ball.

Like a puppy, AIBO is initially clumsy. With time and training, it develops finesse in its movements and takes on unique behavior patterns. Programmed to seek companionship, AIBO's pink ballAIBO simulates emotions like happiness, surprise, and anger and can respond to verbal commands.

AIBO Entertainment Robot is an autonomous robot with interactive features. The name AIBO is from "Artificial Intelligence" and "robot", and it also means companion in Japanese.   

This is the Aibo slated to star in the Movie,  “COMPUTER AGE… COMPUTER RAGE.”

"Computer Age… Computer Rage” is the story of artificial intelligence gone awry.
A young woman devoted to her husband, finds that an application he’s bought for their two computers; a security system with eyeballs that blink and watch it users, results in dire consequences when it develops sentience, tries to take over her husbands being, and sets about to infiltrate and sabotage the government’s own plans of engineering artificial intelligence… disrupting the clandestine help from alien forces, who had been assisting the earth in this endeavor all along.

With the help of a small Aibo® robotic puppy, Sondra devises a plan to sabotage the computers and take back the life of her beloved. Through manipulative engineering, Sondra and her “dog” enter the computer mainframe to destroy the threat to her love, walking through the maze of circuitry and virus protection applications, that are trying to expel them from the computer mind.

Their best friend creates a virus that will disable and eliminate the malevolent thinking machine’s sentience, but is destroyed by the female computer during his attempt to install it. It is the small robotic dog that enables Sondra to defeat her nemesis, by giving its life to save her from the things that think they’re viruses, while she secretly infects the computer. She plants the virus, given to her by her dead friend, and becomes a real life action hero as he fights to free herself from the maze and intricacies of the insides of the computer. She is able to save the day, the world, and the man she loves.

Yet all does not end as quiet as they expect. The computer‘s mainframe has been destroyed, but what of the sentience?

Sondra sits beside the bed of her man, lying in the hospital after the battle with the computers, a new Aibo® puppy at her heels, a fresh outlook on life, and did that monitor just blink an eyeball?
