When we reported the sad demise of Aibo, Sony’s robot dog, we made the point that it could be a worthwhile investment, given that Sony’s "pet" project could be worth a few quid in years to come. Well, it’s not taken long for the collector’s market to kick off – Bayraider has found a limited edition Aibo on eBay for a fairly hefty price.
Yes, you can pick up a limited-edition champagne-coloured Aibo ERS-7M3 for $15,099. That’s considerably more than the £1,500 ($2,780) that a standard Aibo retailed for until its demise earlier this year – quite possibly too much just for a change of coat.
But if you’ve got cash to spare and in need a robotic pet, check out the the full details on this at Bayraider, where you’ll also find loads more weird and wonderful auction finds.
