AIBO - A Return Engagement?

For those of you who have seen one of my lectures, I frequently show a picture of me posing with AIBO, Sony's robotic puppy. He was discontinued and sent to the big AI fire hydrant in the sky a few years ago and it was a sad day for me. At tech shows I would always find time to hang out in the Sony booth and watch the AIBO demos. It was a cool idea that was just a bit ahead of its time.

However, there are now rumors afoot that AIBO's demise may have been greatly exaggerated. It seems that *maybe* AIBO will be back only this time he will interface with the PSP and PS3. Cool huh?

I'm not sure how true this one is, but it's definitely worth mentioning here. AIBO is a geeks dream come true.
