Robot Dog Keeps Photo Blog

A Sony Aibo named Pedro keeps a photblog of his adventures. There is a photo journal that he updates himself wirelessly.
"Pedro wanders freely around our house. Every day from noon to 3.30 pm GMT, he takes a photo every half-hour with his nose camera and mails it to this blog through his wi-fi internet connection."

You can also request a photo from him through email.
It's not quite Big Brother because the view is always from 4 inches off the floor.

Or, read the blog with commentary from Pedro's human.

There are also links to dozens of other Aibo diaries.

Aibo Roblog #1: Pedro

This is a good example of just how uninteresting photos taken from this height are. Potential robot designers should take note. If you're going to put one or more cameras onto a robot they should be at something like human eye level, perhaps on a boom extending from the top of the robot. At human level you can see things which are much more interesting, such as people's faces and desk surfaces.
