The Omnibot i-Sodog pet can be controlled using a smartphone

by Gareth Mankoo

If you are a rare combination of a geek with a pet lover, this one’s is just for you. The Omnibot i-Sodog is every droid and pet lovers dream. It is a robot dog that can be controlled using a remote. The cute tricks of the robot dog steal the show more than the gizmo highlight of controlling it with a remote control. Although the company- Sony AIBO who pioneered this concept is no more, the pet lovers are still on a quest to make it high-tech by allowing it control using a smartphone. It is scheduled to debut at the Tokyo International Toy Show. We haven’t yet got our ears on the price but if you are a true mechanical pet lover, you’d love to own it.
