The CeBit 2011 is opening its doors on March 1st. The toydinosaurPLEO will be back at CeBit 2011 after its last visit in 2009. The Pleo ReBorn went on sale last year in the United States. The pretty expensive toy ($469) is right now sold out again on the Pleoworld site. The next shipment is expected for April.
Pleo Reborn will go on sale in Europe in July for 490 Euros.
Pleo rb is an autonomous robotic life form, modeled on a young Camarasaurus dinosaur. Pleo rb is designed to mimic life, which means Pleo rb thinks and acts independently, just like a real animal. In general, a Life Form looks, moves, and behaves in ways that trigger a "belief of life". Specifically, Pleo rb has organic body language, exhibits emotions, is aware of his/her surroundings and has recognizable behaviors. Pleo rb's sophisticated sensory system has devices that enable him to hear, to see, to sense touch, and to detect objects.
The Pleo dino robot is very cute and it has really advanced technology, but at 500 bucks it remains a very niche toy.

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.
