Hankering for a Dino-bot: UGOBE's Pleo

I want this. I want, I want, I want! :) And who wouldn't want a baby Camarasaurus that can interact, express a range of emotions, learn, sneeze, and even dream? This little darling of a dino was initially announced way back when, and has seen considerable delays, price increase, as well as further development.

While Pleo might not meet any practical need... well, except the need to love... it's set to be one of the more interesting artificial life-forms ever to be created. If you want to buy one (for me?), it'll set you back around $600 and you'll have to wait in line like everyone else who've been gathering cobwebs for this baby to walk off the drawing boards and into their living-room and into their hearts.
