Pictures, Videos, and more Information on Pleo.
YouTube user ellysdoghouse captured an excellent quality video of Pleo and Pleo's very first steps at a recent Sacramento Area Aibo Gathering meeting (SAAG 2007 ). SAAG is a user group comprised of loyal fans of the Sony AIBO. The AIBO was one of the most sophisticated dog robots to grace the consumer robot scene. The members of the SAAG user's group are advanced robot consumers that can appreciate a capable, sensor rich and programmable robot like Pleo.
EllysDogHouse, a truly fortunate YouTube videographer, captures our Pleo making his very first baby steps ever, as a newborn Pleo, which meant he was also very timid and nervous. During the video you can hear the Ugobe spokesman warn the SAAG members not to cuddle him too much or they might spoil Pleo. What is heartwarming is hearing the deep sighs from the SAAG members while Pleo takes his first few steps. Next to Pleo is Dogma, Elly's custom painted, big, green AIBO robot dog. In the many close-up shots, Pleo happily blinks and bats his big blue eyes for the video camera. According to the videographer's video notes, Pleo was low on battery which forced them to limit their playtime with him to only 15 minutes.

Here is the ultra high quality video from Ugobe's official user community site, Pleo World:
And of course, my video from my meeting with Ugobe in Eagle, Idaho last April:
