The first generation AIBO ERS-110 was released in Japan and US in 1999. The release caused a frenzy and the production of 3,000 AIBOs for Japan were sold out in a mere 20 minutes over the Internet and the 2,000 in the US were all gone in four days.

UNSW was lucky that Sony supplied the AIBO's for the first year and was able to enter with the ERS-110's. Since then we have kept up to date with the latest models through the ERS-210's, 210 SuperCores, right through to the ERS-7s. It is now a major cost in our rUNSWift (UNSW/NICTA) Robocup budget.

The amount of research we do with them has them running many more hours per year than Sony's design as an entertainment robot allow - steadily the parts wear out and break. We have boxes of broken legs, cores and heads! We have at times been asked if we could sell or donate our old AIBOs, but in reality we have few working ones left.
