Flash Memory Cartridge Detail.
This is a great toy robot for the price. I love it! Originally it was sold for about $200. It went down substantially since then if you find one. It is much cheaper than it's much more sophisticated, yet more costly Sony Aibo (which I hope to own someday but can't justify the expense right now!). I call i-Cybie the 'economy Aibo'.
The manual says, “This amazing little puppy is going to be an entertaining part of your world. The 4-pound I-Cybie dog is made of 1,400 parts and over 90 feet of wire! There is a powerful artificial intelligence computer and a bunch of smart buttons that allows this little character to do everything but taste and smell. But, the truly incredible part of I-Cybie is the dog’s personality.”
“Your I-Cybie will respond to things in your world with canine-like moods. I-Cybie does this by using some of the same things that you use: body, eyes, and voice. The dog wll express feelings with signature actions, poses and behaviors when interacting in the world that the two of you will create. Play with you new I-Cybie and you’ll have one happy puppy. Ignore the dog and just like you, I-Cybie will become sad."
