They're getting smarter:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Sony's Robot Dog Has Pups<P>Matthew Herper, Forbes.com<P>It's getting more artificially intelligent as well. The last Aibo, ERS-210, could recognize 50 words--these new puppies have a vocabulary of 75 words. And like the other Aibo, the puppies can be reprogrammed to do things like dance to "Who Let The Dogs Out" even while its original memory is downloaded into a Sony Memory Stick.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://biz.yahoo.com/fo/010907/0907tentech_1.html target=_blank>More</a>
