Japanese outfit hpi showed off its G-Dog robotic dog first way back in April, but the little fella is now finally available to buy (although only in Japan for the meanwhile).

The little brother of the original GR-001 robotic pooch stands just 5.3-inches tall and features the same control unit and sensors as his big brother.

But he has a proper pedigree price of $1000, which is a rather large bite out of your savings.
