SAN DIEGO — August 26, 2021 — Sony Electronics announced today the launch of the aibo Community Hub at http://www.aibocommunity.com. The community site offers articles, tips and tricks, forums and events for owners and enthusiasts to connect and learn more about what it means to own and enjoy Sony’s robotic puppy companion.
“aibo is so much more than a robot, aibo is a companion,” said Jeff Carlin, Head of New Business, Sony Electronics Inc. “Owners experience aibo from the ‘puppy’ stage to maturity as the companion grows, learns and develops a unique personality, forming a strong bond with its owner. This community hub celebrates this unique relationship and showcases what living with a social robot can offer.”
Designed to provide a deeper dive into living, learning and sharing what life is like with a social robot, www.aibocommunity.com features articles and videos to educate owners and offer them resources to get the most out of their aibo experience. Virtual events and webinars will offer the opportunity to discuss areas and topics of interest. Additionally, the hub will feature contests centered on favorite aibo photos, training tricks and fun facts.
The aibo community site will also launch the first aibo Owner Ambassador Program. With the goal of supporting current owners and helping to educate prospective owners, these ambassadors will share personal experiences and engage with participants, answering questions along the way. Sony has selected five passionate owners to help launch this site:
