There are further additions if you don't care to program your dog. You can "train your toilet" using your Aibo mapping feature, teach it to be calm and bring it upright. You can also feed bots by using virtual coins to buy "aibocrisps," but you have to be careful. Although you will get coins for free by going to the My Aibo application, Sony also offers coins for purchases with real-world money. Yes, your robot dog now has micro transactions.
Aibo is far from a $ 2,900 trivial purchase. However, the developer tools make it easier to justify if you are fiddling with. You can treat it more as a project than something new with a fixed set of features.
