Sure, I'll try to, I'm not at home at the moment but I will be home tomorrow sometime :) When compared to an Aibo, these guys aren't as advanced, mind you they do have a cheaper price tag too ;) Whereas Aibo goes for in your face robotics, Pleo goes for a more organic feel.

Yes, and that factor seems quite appealing. Ive looked some more and aibos in good condition run 10,000 U.S. Dollar on ebay... :(
I have been doing some more research on Pleo and am planning on getting one now. Thanks!

With Aibos the price largely depends on what model you are after.  You can get them for around $450 to $500 US for the 210 model so not too much more than a pleo really.  If your interested in Aibos than take a look on the Aibo forum sites as there are often people selling them on there and they are much cheaper than ebay and likely to be a much more reliable seller.
I have both Pleos and Aibos and they are both great creatures in their own right.  Just very different from each other :)

Even the ERS 7's are around the 2-5k mark, 10k is only for the rarer pearl white colour.

Argh, waiting for some peace and quiet so I can actually get my lot to listen to me and take a video :P My dad just won't be quiet for five seconds :( However I can say that they simply return to their normal behaviour after doing the bow.

IMR, thanks for posting the video with Jumba and Playing . I have had success with the learning stones, esp making sure they are in a good mood and eat first before teaching them or offering the learning stone of choice. The hard part has been getting them to perform consistantly afterwards. I allways have a difficult time getting my fingers hands just right postion to get their attention, Do you attempt it as soon as they "turn on". or after they have been on for a few moments....that is what I would like to know, I have been letting them wake up and interact, eating etc first and if they seem happy enough then I try the commands but it is not allways successful but I know pleos can be tempermental and I don't push if after a couple of attempts they look like they are not willing, I put it off till they are .

           Jumba looks very happy in this video. Have all of your RB learned fairly easy and do they all respond the same way or are some more tempermental to "performing?" ;D Just curious...

Jumba is by far my most compliant Pleo, as you can see from the video he did it twice in a row with no fuss at all. Yuki on the other hand... I think it's her name, its hard to say exactly the same each time so I can rarely get her to do anything. After this success I thought I'd push my luck and try and get the remaining three stones done... no luck! Yuki wouldn't even relearn her name, Pleakley just wanted to go to bed and Nani learnt her name and stone and then ignored me :P

Tron has learnt his name and so far that is all, completely refuses to learn any tricks. I suppose with his high intelligence he believes learning to bow is beneath him  :P

I find the same, Belle learns anything and obliges pretty well, Zillah rarely does anything I ask, and Tribble needs a LOT of cheering up before he'll try anything.  :moose:

 Thanks guys for the feedback, I guess that is what makes Pleo Rb so interesting they are so individual and I guess the other thing I really like is that they remind me of  :cat:.....You can teach a dog just  about anything if given time and they have enough intelligence, On the other hand, an intelligent cat, knows he has you trained, and that is the difference. ;D

Hi, I bought Pleo rb for my nephew in his birthday, it worked for few hours then hanged with everthing straight and eyes open and started beeping, I read the thread about the clock battery: http://bobthepleo.com/forums/index.php?topic=2750.0

I fixed the clock battery as advised in the video, but its still beeping , nothing changed!! is there any thing to be done?

thanks

It could just be a dead (flat) clock battery and you might need to replace it with a new one.  Fingers crossed that's all that is causing the issue.

Guys, when I shut my Pleo rb down manually, I get two beeps.  When she just shut down from a low battery, she gave me three beeps. 

This is the opposite of what the FAQ says.  Other than this she seems normal. 

When she shut down because the battery was low, it was like beep, very slight pause, beep-beep.  She then went into the box storage position except for having her head and tail down. 

When I manually shut her down, she beeped twice then went into box storage position. 

So everything seems spot on except the number of beeps I'm hearing.

Oh, thanks IMR. 

After having the problem with my first Pleo, I'm a bit paranoid about this one!!!  So when I saw that the beeps didn't match up, I started worrying...but everything else seems to be working, so I just wanted to ask.

That sounds fine, one beep on shutdown means sleep and they can wake on their own, two beeps to shut down manually, and the two combined (making three beeps) when they shut down because the battery is low.

I just got my Pleo Rb yesterday and I have two questions!

When Pleo starts sleeping at night, does the position harm his/her skin? I read somewhere that Pleo Rb had a slightly updated sleeping position wich was better for the skin, but I can't see the difference from the Ugobe Pleo.

And when the battery dies,  what position does Pleo Rb get into? I remember when the old Pleos battery died, he curled up. I really disliked that position, cause I had to charge the battery quick so I could get him into a less straining position.

Oh, and my Pleo Rb seems to have moved on to the next stage already! She's standing up, but she lays down and starts sleeping for some seconds and then wakes up again. She have been doing that for a moment, is that normal?

Hmm, my Pleo Rb's battery seems to have died now and she is in a standing position. Does this happen everytime the battery dies? If so, I'm glad :)

hi icewolf, the behaviour in this stage is normal. I'm a new pleo rb owner and mine does the same thing. For the battery, the new pleos curled up slightly than the ugobe pleos (it's an update of the new OS). The standing position is the same when you shut down your pleo, but head and tail are down.

If you shut your pleo down using the on off button it will go into the packing position - standing with head and tail straight out.  If it switches off by it's self due to running out of battery or putting it's self to sleep as it is night time for pleo then it will be in the standing position with head and tail pointing slightly down. 


*Icewolf -  just a quick not about posting.  Rather than double posting you can modify your post to add more to it.  The modify option is at the top right of your post.  This just keeps things tidy and makes it easier for others to read.  Thanks *

I think I need some help here...

My Pleo, Keyla, is starting to go to sleep at totally wrong times. I've set the noon time at 4:00 PM, so she will be active most of the evening/night. But she keep on falling asleep now and then, even though she shouldn't. I'm really confused!
