Sony resurrecting Aibo?

Sony may be reawakening its long-dormant Aibo product, rumors from Stuff Magazine suggest. While the dog gained media attention as one of the first advanced robots on sale to the public, it was generally sold in low quantities, and went off the market for several years. In 2008 however the Aibo may be back as the "Aibo PS," taking advantage of modern consoles and wireless technology. It is primarily said to be controllable via Wi-Fi, using the Internet, a PSP or a PS3 controller.

Its head-mounted camera is hinted to now have facial recongition, and allow distance control through video streaming to computers and PSPs. This is said to enable the use of an Aibo as a guard dog, complete with e-mail alerts when it is set to watch for motion. Stuff only gives the Aibo PS a 53 percent probability rating, however.

    Aibo hasn't been discontinued for very long -- two years, not "several years." The last model also had facial "recongition" and the ability to act as a guard dog. So where is the value in this "story"? Give us Aibo fans a break.
