Virtual pet robot demonstrated in PlayStation Home


How would you like a pet robot? Y'know, the kind that doesn't try to murder you? The PlayStation Home team showed a work-in-progress pet robot that can befriend you in your virtual apartment. According to IGN, the robot would be able to freely move around the environment and respond to your calls.

The prototype (seen above) won't necessarily make it to the service, but it's something that Home is considering for future updates. This emotive box-robot was made in just five days, and given more time we're certain the Home team can come up with something really creative.

[Thanks, Jack!]
