You can finally have the pet dinosaur you've always wanted*

*OK, it’s a robot toy. But it’s still VERY cool.

CHILDREN WHO DREAMED of having a pet dinosaur of their own, your dreams are finally coming true.

Well, it’s not a real dinosaur, but it might as well be.

The people behind Zoomer the robotic dog are developing a similar dinosaur toy, and if this video is anything to go by, it’s going to be extremely cool.

Did you see that? If you pull its tail, it gets mad.


The developer, who goes by the username neverbentold Redditors that the finished product will cost $100 and be “a lot better” than the one in the video:

This is isn’t an early prototype. This is going into production in a couple of weeks. Everything will be in the production version, except it will be a lot quieter, somewhat more responsive, and will have a more elaborate AI program.

How can it get much better than that? We’re serious.

But the most important question is: Can we have one? Can we?
