Meet ChiP! The robot dog that acts a lot more like a pet than a toy.
I met ChiP for the first time at CES 2016. (CHiP stands for Canine Home interactive Pet.) Wowwee says their new trainable, loyal, & affectionate CHiP can recognize, obey, learn, and wants to be your new best friend. CHiP simulates interactions with a real dog: feels hungry, needs attention, loves to play, and goes to sleep. (But you don't have to take him for 'potty break' walks.) Something Wowwee calls Smartband technology enables CHiP to recognize you, follow you, wait for you to come home, and remind you for mealtime or playtime. Artificial intelligence lets CHiP follow commands, fetch a ball, avoid obstacles, and learn new tricks. An advanced locomotion system allows for high speed, omni-directional motion and extreme agility. He communicates in woofs, growls, whines, and barks, but doesn't eat shoes, or pillows, or anything like that. Capacitive touch sensors allow CHiP to feel pets and pats. Unlock more tricks as you get closer to him. He can Sit - Stay – Come - Lay Down - Go To Bed (he charges while he's in bed) - Bow - Sing and Chase A Ball. He's due out in Summer, 2016 at $199.00, but there's a $179 preorder price at their website (as of 2/4/16)
