For robot dogs a café in Tokyo is hosting weekly play dates and birthday parties

Since November 2018, Tokyo’s Penguin Cafe has held a rather unusual event. Every Sunday, cafe owner Nabuhiro Futaba opens its doors an hour in advance so that city residents and their queen companions can enjoy catch-ups and game dates. The animals, however, are slightly less quinine and slightly more K-9 than you might expect; they are all Aibo robot dogs.

Futaba told Adams that his wife objected to the cost of the techno pet, but he couldn’t resist and was thrilled to have Simon as his four-legged accomplice. Aibo – which means companion in Japanese – refers to the line of Sony’s robot dogs, an extra costing $2,000 last month for storing data in the cloud. As described by Rosalind Adams in BuzzFeed News, who was able to make an intrusion into the future Coffee Morning, the weekly “Ibo World” event involves robots learning techniques from each other and even spreading them out at birthday parties.

It looks like Ibo can provide companionship and pleasure to its owner without the hassle of keeping a live doggo at home. So why would people prefer a robotic dog to a real-life greedy friend?  Café-goers have given Adam a variety of reasons for his lack of space and his inability to face the death of a real pet from a long period of hard work. One feature of the latest Aibo that makes it attractive to those who can’t mourn the loss of their beloved pet is that all the data of the “personality” developer is stored in the cloud. It can be uploaded to a new robot. Basically, your pet Aibo will live forever.

The robot uses artificial intelligence to adapt itself to its owner. The Ibo website reads, As Ibo learns its environment and develops relationships with people, its identity takes on a higher level. “Your Aibo becomes your Aibo with everything
you do.” The idea of ​​lbo seems completely bizarre, but it does make sense. Busy city dwellers who want to struggle to properly care for a real dog now have their own pets to worry about allergies, not gardening, or not spending time walking.

Constantly petting or playing with humans can be stressful for animals and now animal cafes seem to have moved from domesticated pets like cats and dogs to wild animals like owls, snakes, and markets. So popular in recent years that the idea of ​​bursting could provide a new Aibo cafe craze, providing a cruelty-free alternative to real animal cafes. Thus it is better not to give your money to cafes that exploit your wild animals, a cafe is not a natural habitat for any wild animals. Tokyo has a bunch of robot-pips that will make you even happier.
