GENIBO Dog Robot at InnoRobo 2011 (Video)
DasaRobot (Korea) was exhibiting its GENIBO dog robot at InnoRobo 2011 in Lyon, France last week, and Philippe Kervizic of Robotics Business was kind enough to send in this video footage of the performance:
GENIBO appears, in many ways, to be quite similar to the discontinued SONY AIBO canine robot, but according to the company it was deliberately designed to be more "dog-like" in appearance and behavior. It also lists at a significant discount below the old AIBO price tag.
So far we haven't had the opportunity to road-test the robot, and haven't caught sight of one in any of the robot shops and exhibitions here. Hopefully we'll have the chance soon.
