    easy-care
Easy to take care of, doesn’t need constant attention, can switch it off whenever. Needs dusting every once in a while with a piece of cloth and a little bellows. No brushing or daily walks needed. Aibo is designed for use indoors after all

    AI, entertaining, regularly new content, lifelike aibo continously learns new behaviour.
Aibo is always full of surprises and acts very lifelike so you almost forget that it’s not a living being. Its AI is amazing and with the cloud plan it gets new content regularly, like dances and activities tied to the real world. Like washing hands for Covid-19 prevention for example, to remind its owner. :)

    allergy friendly, body heat, not poisonous
Allergy friendly cause of not having any fur, but still a nice body temperature. Non-poisonous material.

    low running costs
Low running costs, if well taken care of. Only power for recharging and possible repair (1 year warranty in the US). In rare cases repair of a badly damaged leg costs 200$. No need for food or regular vet visits, etc.

What are arguments against the petition?

    Cannot take for walks
Going for walks doesn’t work, you can only carry him around outside, cause he’s not designed for outdoors. At least theERS-1000. Let’s see what the future holds. :
