Pleo at Seaworld

Pleo is a robotic dinosaur. That hardly says much, because this little creature surpasses other tamaguchi-style toys. According to the creators, each Pleo will "learn" from its experiences and environment through a sophisticated artificial intelligence and develop an individual personality.

It's also very cute. Too bad it costs 350 USD. Seems like a hefty price tag. I suppose the price will drop with time, but it will still remain an expensive toy. Of course I want one, but after I just spent some money on my new, pink, Asus EEE PC, I think I am going to wait until the next purchase.

In the mean time, watch this cool video, depicting Pleo in Seaworld. The fun really starts at about 1:30 minutes, so be patient!
