This cute robot dog was made by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and is only $299

Check out the new best friend of man’s robotic, courtesy of the Creature Shop and Kickstarter from Jim Henson.

While we’ve seen many versions of electronic or robotic pets, from Tamagotchi in the 90s to Sony’s Aibo dogs, we haven’t seen one like the Tombot yet, who lately met their $20,000 Kickstarter fundraising objective. It operates much like other canine bots, though it is intended to be more of an emotional support dog, rather than a solution for a family searching for a pet that will not harm their allergies.
