A cafe in Tokyo brings together dozens of kindred souls who meet up along with their robotic dogs. The meet up, called Aibo World, sees the owners of the robotic pets, which simulates lifelike dog habits and movements, come together. The robotic dogs are called Aibo, and are manufactured by technology giant Sony. They were first prototyped way back in 1998. The product's website advertises each dog for about $2900 (Just under R48 000), and the dog comes with a ball and a charging station.
