Dogs can be messy, require feeding and leave hair all over the place. So save yourself the bother and get a robot puppy instead. Wowee’s CHiP is the next evolution in robotic pet.

As well as being programmed with a range of canine noises and gestures to entice you, CHiP has infrared eyes so he can see in all directions; gyroscopes to sense when you’ve picked him up; capacitive sensors to register when you stroke him; he adapts its behaviour as you train it. CHiP also has several play toys that can be bought to keep him happy. The SmartBall enables him to play fetch, which you can do together, or he will just entertain himself by chasing it. He also comes with a Smart Band, which is not a collar for him, but for you to wear, so that CHiP can recognise you and know where to find you in the house.

One thing CHiP is lacking however is cute little paws. Instead he actgually rolls around on Meccanum wheels, which allows him to have omnidirectional movement across all different floor surfaces at various speed settings.
