It was equipped with a human voice simulator, allowing it to talk with humans relatively easy. It could understand what it saw and also was able to understand other voices, such as Paulie's and Rocky's. It was of an unknown model and was given to Paulie by Rocky and his family. The robot is named Sico. The robot was made by International Robotics Inc. in New York by CEO and creator Robert Doornick, who is also the voice. Sometime later, the robot roamed the streets, and followed Ivan Drago wherever he went, but could not hurt him. It is widely believed that Paulie used the robot as some sort of electronic sex doll. Those who find this view persuasive often point to the scene where Apollo comes to dinner at the Balboa home to discuss the upcoming battle with Drago and Paulie notes that the robot is "his girl" or something to that effect.
