Bandai Smartpet Robot Dog Toy
This Bandai robot toy dog is the newest addition to the robot dogs available in the market this 2018. Expect great things from this little buddy since it comes from BANDAI, Japan!
To use this robot dog toy, you would need to download an app called “Smartpet” only using Apple devices. Place your phone in the face slot so the device will now be the face of the robot. You can set it to concert mode to sing and dance. You can also perform hands-free tasks like answering calls by doing hand movements and features that are detected using the camera and microphone.
Bandai Smartpet robot dog toy seems fun to have, but it is only available for Apple users specifically for IPhone4/4S, iPhone3GS, and iPodtouch (4th generation). Other devices will no longer fit in the face slot. Another downside is that the App is only available in Japanese. Since this toy is famous for its features, some are trying to imitate it so beware of that.
