Tested.com pointed out a great video series from the New York Times called Robitica that deals with how robots are changing society. The latest video is a fascinating look at Sony’s Aibo series of robotic dogs. Sadly the Aibo was discontinued in 2006 and as of July 2014 replacement parts and services are no longer available too. The video shows happy Aibo owners who are now realizing their robot dog’s ‘mortality’ is limited by the lack of support and spare parts. Perhaps 3D printing replacement parts could help keep Aibos going for years to come?
