"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.

Its an art project...

by JamesRL In reply to He posted a good link

If you read it carefully....

Even the we make money not art link, if you look at the very bottom it says "Gen-pet is part of Pulse, an an emerging artist's show curated by Angella Mackey."

Now I think that now the artist has finished with the installations, showings and photos, he would like to sell them individually....

Sussed - it's a very weird art project.

by Ciderick In reply to Can someone explain this ...

It's an art project created by Adam Brandjes, a sculptor/programmer in Toronto.

Reminds me of

by WingedMonkey In reply to Can someone explain this ...

The old Bonsai Kitty site, if it is still up. I can't tell from work.
It was a several page, good looking site dedicated to raising cats in bottles.
I am not endorsing the activity of raising cats in bottles, but the work put into the site made it look, "legit enough," for a few hundred people to call for the lynching of the site's creator.

Not suprised...

by JamesRL In reply to The FIRST thing I thought ...

You saw the section where it said there were different Genpet models with different lifespans. I'm sure there was some level of commentary there about life and "disposability".

I liked this quote...

by ungle In reply to Can someone explain this ...

"Genpets are low priced enough to make replacement simple should your child have an accident, making Genpets the ideal first pet"

This HAS to be a preceeder to some anti-GM activist site?

Sick hoax? cruel joke? Sick Scientists on crack?

by FedererFan In reply to Can someone explain this ...

From the website under "Meet the GENPETS"

"The Genpets? come in 2 base configurations, a 1-year model, and 3-year model.

From there we?ve broken it down even further. While each Genpet may look the same, really they aren?t. Each Genpet? comes with a color-coded personality. For example, a child that wishes to have a Genpet? that is very energetic would choose a Red Genpet? (see features section for details).
Engineered DNA, engineered personalities, and engineered lifespan, it doesn?t come any better than that. Bio-Genica has you covered on all bases. Just leave the details to us.

In the Packages
As you?ve noticed, each Genpet? comes pre-packaged as a fully self-contained unit. This packaging is part of what truly separates the Genpets? from every other product on the market today. Each package has an embedded microchip that monitors and controls the state of the Genpet while it is asleep waiting for you to take it home. Better yet, it displays the status of the Genpet? with a Fresh Strip, as well as a fully working heart monitor in the top right of the package.

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.

The Genpet? line-up pulls its basis from a natural1 stage of evolution in the market. Dolls and robotic toys quickly become tiresome, while traditional pets require a high level of upkeep. Genpets? however, learn and adapt 2. They are living pets, but better, modified2 to be as reliable, dependable and efficient as any other technology we use in our busy lives.

More questions? Check the FAQ or Features section for more info!"


You have stumped me Mickster. Check out the FAQ. I do hope it is a hoax or joke, though. Sick for sure. Although I did get a laugh or two out of it.
