AI crisis: Sony reports shortage of cute robot puppies!


Cheap compared to a real puppy

at around US$1,800, plus about half that for a three-year cloud subscription fee

At these prices it will be cheaper to buy than most of the "designer" puppies and the on-going costs for the cloud subscription are cheaper than feeding a puppy. Also, it will be a puppy forever... however, I wonder how long before the IoT device (face it that is what it is) is hacked and becomes a Trojan horse.
