Geek Gifts for the Top 1%: The 20 foot Animatronic Triceratops

Who needs a Jungle Room? With this 20 foot Animatronic Triceratops, you can make yourself a Jurassic Room. The head is driven by embedded servos and cams, which are controlled by customized, advanced software. Cameras embedded in each eyeball enable the triceratops to "see," providing interaction with houseguests. The triceratops also growls and bellows, thanks to a 1,000-watt speaker. The cost? $350,000.
