The official name is apparently "AIBO", but common usage seems split between that and "Aibo", so it's not obvious which is right. Does anybody have insights on the distinction? Stan
imho AIBO should be the right one as it's the usage seen on every SONY printed document. User:jimqode
Good ... AIBO is a sort of acronym for Artificial Intelligence roBOt, and as all acronyms should be spelled all U/C. SONY provided this explanation in every user guide and in many marketing materials, and the only way SONY printed the word AIBO was AIBO.
May I suggest a section in this article on the ethics/philosophy/sociology perspectives on this robot? I have never seen or interacted with one but from the description it seems almost as 'alive' as some pets. Any specific critiques of AIBO would be interesting. Alternatively, a link to a relevant article on this subject would be useful. A brief comparison (and link to) Tamagotchi or reference to 'cyber-pets' would also be good. --ChrisJMoor 02:26, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)
There are also studies that have been done with AIBO robots in settings such as senior citizen communities, where it therapeutic benefits of interaction with the pets were investigated.
There is a lot of development and philosophy that went into the creation of the AIBO to make it the most appealing to people, and easy to bond with. Some information about the design process, the philosophy behind the project, could be added. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 01:34, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I removed the mention of stereoscopy - all the AIBOs I've had have only had one camera, thus precluding stereoscopic imaging.
I am working on a website that will explain the different models of AIBO to people. I am constantly being asked which is the best to get?
I agree with ChrisJMoore that it is difficult ot get a perspective on which is the best unless you have specifically interacted with one and know what they are capable of. I will post a link to the specific page when it is complete.
Something should be mentioned with regards to Aibo being scrapped by Sony.

Why was AIBO discontinued?
Nearly all google roads seem to lead to this article. I've searched and removed results that contain phrases that are unlikely to appear anywhere but Wikipedia mirrors:
Can anyone provide a link to verify the actual name of this event its setting?
