Sony brought Aibo, its luxury robot dog, along to CES 2018 so it could show off the pup's abilities to a Western audience. Aibo was previously available as a somewhat limited product in Japan, where it reportedly sold quite well, despite being priced at around the yen equivalent of $1,800.

According to various websites who attended CES, such as engadget, Sony's mechanical mutt proved to be a popular attraction with event-goers. Aibo's got a range of functions: it can understand certain voice commands, react to your touch and movement, act as a webcam, and can even learn to tell different humans apart with enough experience. It also doesn't sh*t on the carpet.
