The Last Dinosaur

You don’t have a profile on Facebook. Ditto for MySpace. People talking about WAPs and widgets may as well be speaking Chinese.

You’re a dinosaur.

So get yourself a comrade of sorts with Pleo, a robotic, prehistoric pet.

The three-and-a-half-pound Camarasaurus has a sensory system made up of 40 devices, allowing it to interact with you through movement, sight, and touch. Based on its interactions and environment, it expresses emotions, so you’ll know when it’s happy, sad, scared, or hyper. As it grows, its developmental progress will reflect how you treat it. And just like a child, its personality will evolve, so be prepared for adolescent angst.

On the upside, there’s no chance of sneaking out, underage drinking, or teen pregnancy.

And nary a profile pic to prove it.
