The most intelligent robotic pet till date

For USD$349, you can take home a pre-historic PET DINOSAUR!!! Introducing yet another intelligent pet that needs all the love you can offer without the mess and hassle of the real thing!

Like seriously... who wouldn't wanna own a baby dino???

Every Pleo is autonomous. Yes, each one begins life as a newly-hatched baby Camarasaurus, but that's where predictability ends and individuality begins. Like any creature, Pleo feels hunger and fatigue - offset by powerful urges to explore and be nurtured. He'll graze, nap and toddle about on his own -when he feels like it! Pleo dinosaur can change his mind and his mood, just as you do.

They have a USB connection that enables you to download new sounds and behaviors as they update the site, so the toy will be forever changing. Unlike other electronic pet toys that tend to get to the final stage of "development" and stall.

From toy developer UGOBE, Pleo's sophisticated sensory system consists of nearly 40 devices that enable him to see, sense, touch and detect objects in order to move autonomously and explore his environment without requiring any remote control. This robotic dinosaur includes a color camera with a white-light sensor that allows him to detect bright light from dark, see colors, detect motion, track a moving object, and perceive objects in front of him. This unit also includes binaural microphones on the left and right that give him stereophonic hearing, allowing him to detect sound direction and loudness through both ears. An infrared receiver and transmitter allows Pleo to identify, communicate and interact with one another, while another infrared interruptor allows Pleo to detect when something is being placed in his mouth. Meanwhile eight touch sensors on his chin, shoulder, legs, back and head are triggered by touch and allow him to "feel." What's more, this dinosaur has a skin that is constructed of a custom-formulated, soft thermoplastic material that's painted with an incredibly realistic and lifelike coloration.

The Pleo Life Form also has over 100 custom-designed gears, and 14 motors for highly-articulated movement. Each motor has a force feedback sensor that makes them sensitive to forceful grabs at the dinosaur's legs, neck, tail and torso, causing him to shut down during trauma to avoid internal damage. Pleo will actually react to being hurt, perhaps exhibiting a limp, and can recover over time depending on the level of nurturing you exhibit. Ground sensors allow Pleo to know when a foot is on a solid surface or when he has been picked up, while tilt and shake sensors allow him to know if he has fallen or is being held upside down. The sensors will also wake him up after he has fallen "asleep." Both front and rear speakers even enable Pleo to communicate via cute honks and hoots, as well as other fun and natural sounds.

Pleo Theme Song
Hear it Here

A tiny spark of life
A little bit of joy
A baby dino made into a toy
For every girl and boy

Imagination's pride
And curious blue eyes
A gentle friend that's come to play
Pleo will take your breath away

I've waited so long
I'll make a place for you
Inside my home
There's nothing left to do but say
Remember the heart of a child knows
That love goes with Pleo

With Pleo, the baby dino wants to play with you

Pleos are currently on back order till next year...
Now I want both a GUPI and a PLEO. Am sure a guinea pig and dinosaur will make great pals!
