"Out of the packages,
Genpets have limited mobility. Like dolls, puppies or human babies, they must be looked after and cared for. Upon waking from its dormant state the Genpet will immediatly bond or imprint to your child."

This site scares me.

Whoa, Mick! This rates a 10 on the weird-meter!

It appears to be some strange spin-off of the electronic pets that were so popular a couple of years ago. But if the website is accurate, this is a living life form! Adopting an animal is one thing. This is bizarre and WRONG on so many fronts.

Scares me too! Could it be a prank of some sort?

Each Genpet is robotized so they move and twitch in their packaging. The heart rate monitor shows activity.

A very cool toy! Weird, but cool.

The the artist was successful

by JamesRL In reply to Creepy as hell

I think it was meant to ask (but not answer) the question of just how far we should go in genetic engineering.

Whats shocking when you read the article is how some people thinking it was real, banged on the window in protest, and others clamoured to get in to buy one.....social commentary?

I got an excellent EMail from a TR'er about that...

But I'll let them decide if they want to repost it.

What bothered me (besides the sheer creepyness of the idea) was that you could buy them in 1 or 3 year life spans...
