A robotic pet is an artificially intelligent machine made in the image of an animal commonly kept as a pet. There are a variety of robotic pets such as dogs, cats, and birds. Robotic pets may also include things not normally considered pets, like Pleo, a simulation robotic dinosaur. Some people even treat these robots as actual pets. Domestic robots such as the Roomba are used for work that an elderly person would probably struggle with. Robot pets also keep elderly people from being depressed and also keep them active. A very popular robotic pet is Tekno the Robotic Puppy [1]
