Expectant UK owners will have early access to pre-order ChiP from Amazon.co.uk from 1st of June for £199.99rrp with actual product arriving from 30th August.

The world’s newest ChiP breed will be also available across the UK from leading toy and tech retailers from September 2016.

Based on new Mechatronics, the latest in a combination of wireless technology, telecommunications engineering and a suite of advanced sensors, CHiP is truly the latest and greatest in robotic pets.

CHiP recognizes its master and responds to commands using the included SmartBand, a sleek, rechargeable wearable controller. Also, CHiP plays fetch and fun games with the SmartBall, interacting in all the ways a real dog would…CHiP even plays soccer with you!

After a day of endless fun, CHiP knows it’s time to head to its special SmartBed and recharge. With a 360-degree system of play that’s physical, digital and tactile, along with an intuitive, evolving app, CHiP is an exciting addition to today’s connected home and fun for all ages.

“We saw such an incredible demand from our IndieGoGo backers earlier this year that we sprinted to develop and include it in the final product. The WowWee team worldwide has created a robot that will change the way people of all ages interact with robotic pets,” said WowWee Chief Tech Officer Davin Sufer.

WowWee , a smart   toy company , has unveiled a robotic dog with blue-green LED eyes. The dog, aptly called CHiP (short for Canine Home Intelligent Pet), sits with the tap of a button, picks up your presence in the room via bluetooth and plays fetch. The sensor-loaded pup comes with a toy-watch looking wristband that allows it to pick up your whereabouts. When you're happy with your "pet's" response, you can press down a thumbs up on the wristband as a sign of approval -- it's the digital equivalent of a belly rub.
