Engadget posted a story that Sony is ceasing development of the Aibo and QRIO robots. I’m very dissapointed about this. Sony just recently released Mind 3 for the Aibo. And QRIO’s abilities seemed very impressive also.
You can read about QRIO’s cababilities and watch a demonstration on Sony’s site. I don’t know how long they will keep that page up.
When I first watched that demonstration, I was determined that I would someday own a QRIO, now that will never happen. At least Honda still has the Asimo.
