Gadget Shop Hammacher Schlemmer launches new Site and offers a $350,000 Dinosaur

Legendary gadget Shop Hammacher Schlemmer launches new site and new gadgets.

Hammacher Schlemmer is probably the oldest gadget shop out there. They offer unique products since over 163 years. The legendary gadget shop has now launched a cool new site design. The featured product on the homepage is also a very dramatic gadget. You can actually buy a 20 foot animatronic Triceratops dinosaur for $350,000. This high-tech dino is featured at museums around the nation and Hammacher offers you the chance to take one home.

The motion-sensing, 20' long animatronic triceratops that responds to onlookers with lifelike reactions and fortissimo bellowing. Motion-activated cameras installed into each eye work in unison with customized interactive software that enables the Cretaceous creature to recognize multiple subjects' facial features. Once identified, subjects' tracked movements trigger a set of responses: it sways its tri-horned head right, left, up, and down, stomps and scuffs its right forelimb, and opens its jaws while growling--all powered by digitally controlled servos and silent, pneumatic air-activated cams. 

The new Hammacher site (black background) is currently only rolled out to Google Chrome browsers. Hammacher will soon launch the site on all browsers.

Visit Hammacher Schlemmer now.
