Aibo can swim!

Aibo can swim!: “

Filed under:

The operating parameters for the Aibo — when it was alive — were pretty much in line with standard tech: no extreme temperatures, and a maximum of around 80% humidity unless you want your virtual dog to turn into a twitching mess. Adding a little realism to the post-Aibo era is the pictured ‘swimming costume’, which allows the lovable electric doggy to take a dunk like its flesh and blood brethren. No word on whether the students behind the research project programmed the dog so it’d shake off excess water in front of the nearest stranger, as is so often the case with real life canines.
