Before we get carried away with robotic soul mates, let's start out with man's best friend. HPI has produced a robotic G-Dog. This isn't the name of the latest rap star - it's a robotic canine. Set to go on sale in July, the G-Dog is powered by 7.2 volt nickel hydrogen batteries, is equipped with three-axis acceleration sensors and stands at 7.5 inches. I wonder... will it 'WOOF' or will it speak to us in a robot-laden dialect of our own language?
