Calling all dog lovers and tech enthusiasts! Sony Electronics Inc. announced that the limited-quantity aibo Espresso Edition is now available for purchase in the United States. Originally released in Japan in late January 2023, the aibo Espresso Edition is the fourth colour variation of the acclaimed aibo robotic “puppy” companion in the United States.

The aibo Espresso Edition features a brilliant black body with white accents and comes with four exclusive eye colour options, including an “odd eyes” option that sets aibo’s eyes to two different colours simultaneously.

The aibo Espresso Edition comes with a three-year AI Cloud Plan, a charging station (including both a charging stand and charging mat), AC adaptor, a power cord, and a special pink ball for playtime.

The three-year AI Cloud Plan lets aibo gather and access its daily life experiences, enabling it to develop a unique personality that grows and evolves. Each aibo recognises faces and develops familiarity with people over time, remembering which actions make owners happy. As each aibo is shaped by its daily interactions and the parenting style of its owners, the personality, behaviour, and knowledge of every new puppy companion are unique. 

In addition to supporting aibo’s learning capabilities, the AI Cloud Plan ensures aibo will be upgraded for years to come by growing its functionality with new tricks, software-based features, and even entirely new behaviours.

Parents of aibo can also stay connected to their pup using the “My aibo” app, which provides an easy and handy interface that allows users to play with their pet, feed their pet virtual meals and treats, add new behaviours and tricks to its repertoire, and more.
