There are additional additions if you are not interested in programming your verse. You can "train Aibo's chest" with a mapping feature, teach him to be quiet, and wear him upright. You can also power the bot by using virtual coins to buy "aibocrisps", but you'll want to be careful. Although you will earn coins for free by entering the My Aibo app, Sony also offers coins for real money purchase. Yes, your dog robot already has microtransactions.
Aibo is still far from the trivial purchase of $ 2900. However, developer tools make it easier to justify if you are the sorting wizard. You can treat it more as a project than as a novelty with a fixed set of features.
