Meet CHiP: a cute robot that wants to be your dog. This robotic dog has LED eyes and plays fetch. It comes with a wearable device that allows it to detect where you are. You also get a bed that works as its charging station. When CHiP is running low on battery, it returns to its SmartBed.
The robot has an adaptive personality, so its character changes and grows over time. It has artificial algorithms and can see, speak, listen, and feel. CHiP costs under $200 at his time.
