Well, I have pre-ordered the Pleo.
No idea when it will come. I am in no rush. But when it gets here, I will be excited.
Pleo is a robotic dinosaur, made for all ages, designed to emulate the appearance and behavior of a week-old baby Camarasaurus. It was designed by Caleb Chung, the co-creator of the Furby, and manufactured by Ugobe. Chung selected this species of dinosaur because its body shape, stocky head, and relatively large cranium made it ideal for concealing the sensors and motors needed for lifelike animation. According to Ugobe, each Pleo will “learn” from its experiences and environment through artificial intelligence and develop an individual personality.
Maybe we will code it to run after our programmers who have been slacking off. I hear it has an API. 🙂
