Robot dogs are usually rubbish. K9 off Doctor Who was merely an oversized toaster with a posh voice. And Muffit, that insufferable robo-hound from Battlestar Galactica, was little more than a chimp in an Ewok suit (no, really - we've checked).

So why should i-dog be any different, we hear you yelp. Well for starters i-dog is about a billion times more intelligent than the aforementioned cyber canines. But, more importantly, i-dog is a music lover. In fact i-dog can't live without a few decent toe-tappers. That's because this cute little bow wow 'feeds' on the tunes you play him and develops one of three personalities according to the music he hears. He even functions as a portable speaker for your audio player. A kind of woof-woofer, if you will.

i-dog The idea is to feed i-dog with music at least once an hour when he is switched on. Simply plug his lead (well, connector cord) into the headphone jack of your audio device (CD player, stereo, MP3, computer, etc.) and let the doggie disco commence. This harmonic hound also comes complete with a dual jack so you can plug your headphones in and dance along to the music too. i-dog begins life in Puppy Mode but as you feed him he will begin to react to the tunes he hears. You have to get it just right because i-dog really is a discerning little digi-dog. Rock and punk make him rebellious, pop and R&B make him happy and dance music makes him excitable. As you can see, i-dog really knows his music, but we urge owners to refrain from playing him any G4 as we wouldn't want the RSPCA getting involved. Bismillah! No!

i-dog A series of multicoloured lights on i-dog's face also help to show how he is feeling. A blue light on i-dog's forehead shows when he needs a musical fix, but you need to get it just right; play too much music and the light patterns will indicate that he is ecstatic; ignore him and they will indicate that he is bored.

i-dog also reacts to movement. Stroking his head or touching his nose will make him happy and you can also discipline him by touching his tail - although this will make him growl. Bad i-dog!

i-dog i-dog i-dog can also use his built-in microphone to listen and react to music from an outside source. We plonked him next to a radio during Dr Fox's show and his ears sagged in despair. Thankfully a few bars of Smack My Bitch Up soon perked him up and before long he was nodding his head and waggling his ears in appreciation.

i-dog This state-of-the-art interactive pooch is a truly entertaining desktop companion and his sleek, up-to-the-minute styling will complement any audio set-up. Better still, i-dog doesn't need walking or delousing - a few decent tunes will keep him happy. In fact, if music be the food of love i-dog is flippin' starving!
