Genibo Robot Dog

The Dongbu ROBOT Genibo Robot Dog is a Bulterrier type dog. It has been designed in Korea where it has been extremely popular since 2005. This Genibo Dog has a mischievous and charming personality. It does not like to have its sides touched. It also loses energy and falls asleep when its owner does not pay attention to it for at least five minutes. It may cause trouble here and there, if vigilance is not kept. Your family will love your Genibo and feel it is a real pet dog. Like a real dog, Genibo can recognize your family and show you emotion!

Autonomous behavior
This advanced Korean Robot Dog can act freely and react without command. It also expresses love and charming acts towards the owner just like a real dog.

Voice Command recognition function
This dog recognizes commands when it is instructed to do something after touching the head and responds accordingly.

Self reaction function
For self reaction function, it uses built-in tilt sensor that recognizes the position and gets up on its own even when it falls to the side.

Photography function
This Robot can also photograph or transmit images real-time using the control manager.

Genibo control manager
It installs the software control manager for PC to control the robot's movement from the PC using wireless LAN. You can also control LED in the eyes and add on new voice commands and emotion icons into the robot.

Remote controller to control
The remote control can be used to move the robot to the left, right, front and back, to act cute or to act as if peeing.
