Pleo Robot Dinosaur Review
The Pleo Robot Dinosaur measures 21 inches in length and stands 7 inches tall. The toy is well built, and looks amazing while roaming around the room.
When the dinosaur stands up, the Hatchling Stage is activated. The Hatchling Stage is a mode in which the dinosaur starts to walk around while sensing his environment. In the Hatchling Stage, the dinosaur performs various actions for 45 minutes. For example, it plays different sounds every few minutes, whizzes around the room and takes short naps. Once the 45 minutes are over, the dinosaur stands still, and it is time to recharge the battery, which takes about an hour. Once recharged, the dinosaur enters in the Juvenile Stage, in which it exhibits a full range of different movements.
The Pleo Robot Dinosaur features touch sensors in the mouth, chin, back, head, feet and shoulders, a mini USB port for downloading new personalities, and a camera-based vision system to sense its path around by light.
The Pleo Robot Dinosaur is a cool thing to own. It costs US $449. It is very expensive, but with all the nice features that this rubber skinned robot dinosaur has, the price tag is not too high at all.
