AIBO (Artificial Intelligence Robot, homonymous with aibō (相棒), "pal" or "partner" in Japanese) is a series of robotic pets designed and manufactured by Sony. AIBOs were marketed for domestic use as "Entertainment Robots". They were also widely adopted by universities for educational purposes (e.g. Robocup) and research into robotics and human-robot interaction.

The AIBO anime Piroppo (ピロッポ?) was created featuring the original ERS-31X series, Latte and Macaron as a promotional series. The anime took advantage of the 31X series' Media Link mode to trigger sounds and actions on your AIBO.
