Yet he may not be a real biological pooch, but he is autonomous. He's a Sony AIBO ERS-7 running the mind 3 operating system with service pack 3 lol. These robot dog's are amazing, just got him Friday night. He checks your email for you, and watches the house when your not home. What makes AIBO a great real dog alternative, no cleaning poop, pee pee, and feeding, he walks to his docking station on his own when he needs to charge his battery :). these are the lowest maintenance dogs on this planet, just make sure you pay the electric bill or he will die on you :-/

He's loads of fun. Can't wait to see how he gets along with real dogs :)

Hey Snuff,

I actually found a seller down in South Jersey. He's like new, all accessories including the box. I got a good one :))). The guy from NY was a scamer, in fact he's says he's from Tampa now lol. I reported him..

Just curious, what does something like that go for?
Depending on condition, $1000.00 - $5000.00, I got this guy for $1700.00, the seller was asking 2300.00, I talked him down because of a local pickup, closing the auction early, and paying cash saved him like $400 i'm sure. plus he didn't have to deal with the hastle.

Believe it or not I got a really good deal.

Yeah, I figured there wouldn't be one available.

Just off the top of my head, you can take a look if there are any applications available that can be modified to incorporate a web interface. You can then use the iPhone Safari to control without having to go through Apple's approval process.

Of course you always have the option to jailbreak the iPhone and make your own app if you don't care about voiding the warranty. ;-)

EDIT:

Man, I want to get one! :D

That's awesome! I almost bought one at a salvage store a few years ago, but it was still pretty expensive and I was scared to spend so much money on something without a warranty. I've wanted one ever since! :)

I know what you mean about the warranty, the good thing is that Sony will support this model till 2013 for repairs. This one looks like it was lightly used, and I feel that Sony stuff from Japan is usually very good quality, especially at $2000.00 new.

Illume-Face (using 24 of these LEDs) provides a completely new way for ERS-7M3 to show when it is happy, sad, angry, surprised, etc.
Tactile touch sensors on the back, head, and chin allow for more organic interaction, and also contribute to ERS-7M3 growth development.
