Following the Sony Corporation FY05 3Q announcement, the production of AIBO Entertainment Robots has been discontinued as of end March 2006. As for the sales activity, we will discontinue the sales of AIBO once all remaining stock runs out.
Yes, sadly this is true. I always considered Aibo (Artificial Intelligence RoBOt, - now you know) as an icon of mans exploration into the world of robotics. Development on both Aibo and QRIO (Quest for CuRIOsity, pronounced - Curio) has stopped.

On a positive note selected technology such as voice and face recognition technologies will continue to be developed by research & development teams for a future Artificial Intelligence purposes. In the short term the good bits will be deployed for use in a broad range of consumer electronics products.
