  This robot wants to wear your face. You'll get $130,000 for sharing Meet your robot twin, if you're OK with licensing your visage.A British engineering and manufacturing firm called Geomiq has put out a call for people interested in being the face of a new "state-of-the-art humanoid" it's developing with an unnamed company.

For years, Sony has been developing robot dogs that have the capacity to emulate the behavior of real pups. Last year, the sixth generation of Aibo went on sale Most recently, the robot dog received an update that allows developers to program Aibo to perform specific actions like eating a virtual cookie.

For years, Sony has been developing robot dogs that have the capacity to emulate the behavior of real pups. Last year, the sixth generation of Aibo went on sale in the US complete not only with pooch mannerisms, but also with AI and cloud-connected technology.

Since this launch, Aibo has become as much of a house watchdog as a companion thanks to software updates that take advantage of the device's cameras and sensors to send owners live reports of their house while they're away. Most recently, the robot dog received an update that allows developers to program Aibo to perform specific actions like eating a virtual cookie.

Version 2.50 of the ERS1000 model comes with a web-based API which gives owners access to the "Aibo Developer Program" and "Aibo Visual Programming" tools. While developers ranging from beginner to advanced can program Aibo to make original movements and tricks, "they cannot change the emotion, character or mood of Aibo through programming."

Sony hopes that such tools can be cooperative in the future so that they can be shared between users.

The education-focused robotics platform is now available. I gave it a test drive.Sphero RVR is mainly targeted at schools and educational programs, but the $250 robot could be used as a home robot if your kid was into programming. It pairs easily with a phone/tablet app and can work as a remote control car, but it also can be programmed using Scratch or Javascript.
