Ugobe Pleo Robot Dino available for Pre-Order
 
 

There where many delays, but finally Ugobe announces that the Pleo is available for pre-order now.

Pleo has it what it takes to become a major toy. Pleo is modeled after a one-week old Camarasaurus (or long neck) dinosaur, the best-known Jurassic sauropod found in North America.
Like all UGOBE Life Forms, Pleo will evolve through life stages and develop a unique personality based on interaction with his owner.

You can pre-order Pleo for $349, which is quite some money for a toy. The other bad news is that you have to wait until October to receive a Pleo.Besides on the Ugobe store, Pleo will be available for pre-order on Amazon.com and other online retailer.

If you had subscribed to the Ugobe Pleo mailing list, then you have received a special first hatch coupon code. It allows you to pre-order Pleo and it will arrive 2 weeks earlier. It will also come with a gold First Hatch identity card.

Ugobe launched a community site for Pleo owners at Pleoword.com.

Pleo specs:
Each Pleo will have significant technology and processing power, including two 32-bit microprocessors, four 8-bit subprocessors, 14 motors, more than 100 custom-designed gears, 38 sensors, a camera-based vision system, two speakers, and multiple data ports (Mini USB, SD card slot, infrared transceiver).

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
