Aaah, he’s a cute little fella isn’t he! His name is QRIO, he’s a robot toy and he was unveiled last week at Sony’s Dreamworld event.
QRIO wowed both journos and punters with his ability to walk on two legs, his advanced communication capabilities (he can recognise individuals and respond appropriately to them) and of course, his footballing skills.
Needless to say it will be ages before we get QRIOs here in Europe. In fact Sony didn’t seem too confident that anyone would want to buy one, which is odd as its the first set of AIBOs for Europe sold out in minutes.
The last AIBO we played with terrified our dog and one year old. Can’t imagine what they’ll make of QRIO.
Anyhow, if you’d like to find out more check out Sony’s website
