Café in Japan holds play dates for ROBOTIC dogs. The Penguin Café invites hardware canines and their owners in for a play date every Sunday morning before opening to serve drinks and other treats to the public. The event, called 'Aibo World' after Sony's robot dog, started a few months after the owner of the establishment purchased his own Aibo. Dozen of robotic dog owners attend, dressing their hardware friends up for the occasion - many arrive wearing bows, hats or ties.
