In order to bring aibo to life and allow it to express its emotions, Sony developed ultracompact 1- and 2-axis actuators. These give aibo's compact body the freedom to move along a total of 22 axes and make its smooth, natural movements possible.

Furthermore, its eyes utilize two OLEDs to allow for diverse, nuanced expressions.

In addition, aibo can detect words of praise, smiles, head and back scratches, petting, and more, allowing it to learn and remember what actions make its owners happy. Slowly but surely, aibo will also become more aware of its environment, and as it gains confidence it will learn to walk around an increasingly wider area and respond to situations accordingly.
