Other robotic expressions
Although body language is the most direct way for AIBO to
show its emotions or desires, it has other means of expressing
itself.
When in the autonomous mode, AIBO is always in one
robotic state of mind or another. AIBO shows these states by
using robot language or flashing its eye lights. To express its
physical condition, AIBO uses its chest light.
Robot language and sound effects
AIBO emits sounds in various situations of its daily life.
It emits
sounds as if talking to itself when it receives a command, when
waking up, when playing, or when it has something to say.
When in a better mood or situation, AIBO will emit sounds or
play more melodic tonal phrase.
Eye lights
When you send a command,
approve or scold AIBO, it
acknowledges by blinking its
eye lights for a second. The
lights also indicate changes in
its emotional state which may
help you detect its current
mood.
Chest light
AIBO uses the chest light to show its physical condition, especially the
remaining battery power.
