Sony Aibo Robot Dog

Sony released a first version of this robot dog several years ago, but due to the limitations in robotics at the time it was pretty basic by today's standards. This latest iteration of the Sony Aibo features dozens of modern advancements that include artificial intelligence in addition to robotics. The look and feel of the robot is much more friendly and welcoming and actually resembles a real dog as opposed to the clunky sci-fi pet look of its predecessor. The movements are fluid and natural thanks to the ultracompact 1 and 2 axis actuators. The internal software is what makes the major difference with the Aibo, allowing it to learn and understand your preferences as well as your home and other environments that it will be spending time with. If you're not ready for the commitment of a real pet that you requires actual food and exercise, then this little guy might be just what you're looking for.

Moment Pro Camera App
Now that just about every new smartphone off the shelf has a DSLR-killing camera, the concept of third party apps to take and edit pictures has sort of fallen out of use. After all, if your pics come hot off of the default camera app looking great, there’s no longer a need for fifty filters or major edits to make them look presentable anymore. However, if you’re looking to go the extra mile these days and produce some of the best pictures possible on a mobile device, the Moment Pro camera App might just be what you’re looking for. In fact, one of the things that DSLRs have over some of the best smartphone cameras, especially the iPhone, is the ability to customize all of the settings. The Moment Pro Camera App gives you the power to change every setting from iso, to focus, to white balance, on your mobile device, and that’s alongside all the other editing and processing features you would expect from a camera app. So maybe the iPhone X camera really is a DSLR-killer, if used in combination with this handy app.
