Pleo the little Camarasaurus

Check out the Pleo, an animatronic toy from startup Ugobe, ships Oct 15 according to Amazon but only to US addresses, so I'll have to call in a favour from one of my yanqui buddies.

Never mind the US$199 asking price! This lil critter looks like it finally does what toys from Roboraptor back to Furbles were designed to do - behave like organic creatures, interact with people and each other, and learn and grow.

This demo video of Pleo waking up and interacting with his designer is quite amazing.

I hope my son wants one of these this Christmas, because otherwise, he's getting me one!
