    Anyone know of any robotic pets?

    Ok this might sound a bit sad, but I suddenly fancy getting a robot pet!!! I know Sony did the Aibo, but its discontinued now. Does anyone know of an alternative? I want something that will just wander around the flat, eventually learning where tables and chairs are, will find its way back to a docking station to recharge when batteries run low, preferably respond to voice commands.
    Don't ask why I want one, just something that popped into my head!

    Depends how much you want to spend really...

    This is quite a new one but pretty expensive: thepleo.co.uk/

    or theres tonnes of dog robots out there that you can probably get quite cheap. But the more you spend the more realistic the robots going to be...

    I bought a dog one a few years ago but couldnt get it to work so ended up getting a refund on it.

    Sounds like your describing a robotic vacuum cleaner. :-D

    To be honest I was anticipating a four figure sum.
    This Pleo sounds quite good but I'm unsure how advanced it is. Off to find some more info about it now.
