AIBO Gets The Axe, Shock Drives ASIMO To Quilting!

It’s really scary when one of your co-workers gets their pink-slip and is shown the door. It’s even scarier when the co-worker happens to be one of the most well known and popular robots on the planet like Aibo. Aibo’s termination this week must have made ASIMO’s blood oil run cold, because this Saturday we discovered him shilling for all he’s worth at a local quilting show (see photos below).

All of the following photos were taken by Robots Dreams reporting on-site at the Tokyo International Quilt Show in Japan on Saturday, January 28th, 2006 at Tokyo Dome.

  Of course, it was all part of Honda sales efforts at the quilt show
