Smartpets from Bandai


The latest gizmo from Bandai is the smartpet, a robot dog that uses an iPhone or iPod touch as its head. Once it is attached to an iPhone, the screen can show up to 100 dog facial expressions. An app allows the smartpet to recognize the owner's face, voice and mannerisms via the iPhone camera. On sale April 28. Open pricing.

"100 dog facial expressions"

Dogs don't have 100 facial expressions. Dogs have 3 facial expressions -

"I'm happy"

"I'm pissed"

"What's going on?"
