Sony Marketing Inc., in collaboration with Lentio Inc., has started a paid rental service for the autonomous entertainment robot “aibo”.

It is said that it responded to requests from people who are considering purchasing aibo, such as wanting to make a purchase decision after actually interacting with aibo, or wanting to touch aibo for a long time at home.

In response to such customer feedback, Sony Marketing, which sells aibo, will start offering aibo rental services in collaboration with Lentio Co., Ltd., which develops rental services for home appliances and cameras.

The loan period can be extended from a short-term loan of 7 nights and 8 days, where you can easily experience life with aibo, to a long-term loan of 3 months, which you can enjoy while interacting with aibo.

The price is 15,000 yen (tax included) for 7 nights and 8 days, and 89,400 yen (tax included) for 3 months.
In addition, since the rented aibo has already subscribed to the “aibo basic plan” required to connect to the aibo-dedicated cloud service, it is possible to enjoy life with aibo immediately from the day it is received. ..
