Ugobe, the makers of the $350 robotic dinosaur "Pleo", have filed for Chapter 7.
Well, no wonder. Though kinda cute, it’s really silly.
Best headline in recent memory.
Very sad. I have one. Always wanted it and now it just collects dust in the corner although every now and then I power him up and realize how technically cool he really is.
You know, if you really do want one, the prices have been slashed down to $100 on Amazon.
Huh, forget I said that. Looks like the price jumped up to $200. Glad I got an order in while I did!
they need to scale it up to a huge sort of all terrain armoured transport and sell them to an evil empire.
$100 you say, i may have to buy.
no pleos on amazon for $100, but i did find some “in memory of Pleo” dogtags. pffft.
Sounds like a job for Vince Shlomi!
Dang! Now who’s going to develop my robot puppy? I WANT MY ROBOT PUPPY!
Is there anywhere I can download any of the updates and other software that was available?
