When I think about the kind of robot companion that I’d like to
have, I usually thing of something big and menacing. However, other
people tend to go for the cute and cuddly route, which is why Sega
created the Dream Dog DX Golden Retriever.
This new robo pooch looks to be one of the best of its kind that
we’ve seen. I’ve just never bought into the whole futuristic-looking
animal robots, as they just end up looking very cheap and, well,
plastic. But looks aside, the Dream Dog DX can respond to voice
commands such as sit, roll over and speak. He even nips at your fingers
when you play with his nose and will make very realistic dog sounds. If
cute bots are your thing, then you can adopt one of these in September
for around $276.
