Japanese Monks Host a 'Funeral' For Old Robot Dogs Before Their Parts Get Taken

It's not so strange for animals to get their own Funeral, after all, they become family. However, we have never heard of a funeral for robot dogs! Well, that's what they did in Japan! 114 of Japan's Sony old generation AIBO robot dogs (the world's first machine pet capable of developing its own personality) were sent off to dog nirvana.

Step inside his workshop to see how his mechanical menagerie spies on nature's actors.
