Sony Electronics Launches Limited aibo Strawberry Milk Edition in the US
Latest Sony Offering Gives Users a Customizable, Highly-Social Companion Robot
SAN DIEGO, Feb. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Electronics Inc. today announced that the limited-quantity aibo Strawberry Milk Edition (ERS-1000/P) is now available for purchase in the United States directly from Sony. Originally released in Japan in late January 2022, the aibo Strawberry Milk Edition is the third color variation of the acclaimed aibo (ERS-1000) robotic "puppy" companion in the United States.
The aibo Strawberry Milk Edition features a vibrant pink color body with white accents and performs an exclusive dance unique to Strawberry Milk Edition models. As with the current white aibo model, the aibo Strawberry Milk Edition comes with a three-year AI Cloud Plan1, charging station including both charging stand and charging mat, AC adaptor, power cord and a special pink ball for playtime.
The three-year AI Cloud Plan lets aibo gather and access its daily life experiences, enabling it to develop a unique personality that grows and evolves.2, 3 Each aibo recognizes faces and develops a familiarity with people over time, remembering which actions make owners happy. As each aibo is shaped by its daily interactions and the parenting style of its owners, the personality, behavior and knowledge of every new puppy companion is completely unique.
In addition to supporting aibo's AI-powered learning capabilities, the AI Cloud Plan ensures aibo will be kept current for years to come by growing aibo's functionality with new tricks, software-based features and even entirely new behaviors.
aibo parents can also stay connected to their pup using the "My aibo" app2, 3.The app provides an easy and handy interface that allows users to play with their pet, feed their aibo virtual meals and treats, add new behavior and tricks to its repertoire and more.
With the launch of the aibo Strawberry Milk Edition, customers can receive a special bundle offer with the purchase of an ERS-1000/P of four accessories: paw pads (ERA1021), aibone (ERA1020), aibo Food Bowl (aiboFB) and the aibo Water Bowl (aiboWB).
