Although the popular Sony AIBO was discontinued way back in 2006, there remains a healthy demand from geeks, young and old, in owning a robot dog. Hoping to once again test the robotic pet market is Takara Tomy's new Omnibot i-Sodog.

"Pricing hasn't been announced, but according to reports, the Omnibot i-Sodog will hit the stores sometime in early 2013..."

They couldn't get it to market in time for the holiday season?

translates to.. maybe see it in 2013 if you are lucky.

Although, when is the giving season in Asia?

It is always giving season in Asia.

That's awesome.

Now that we've got people figuring how to do things like run Arduino robots on nodejs, I feel like the next thing is iPhone-controlled robots!

I can't wait to own a remote-controlled helicopter with iPhone integration and onboard camera you can watch through the phone.

Hey we're having a robot vertical at the Google I/O after hack -

It's not just for iPhones!

give it a few years and maybe it will work with big dog?
