    If they can put a high powered explosive inside that thing that would detonate when some seal hunter starts to club it, then I’d be all for it!

    So, it’s basically like those AIBO dog robots except it’s furry and makes annoying sounds.

    I don’t see this as a replacement for pets or animals but I do see it as the perfect replacement for Screaming Goats.

    It’s a little creepy………nothing like the Darpa bots though. And I confess…..I find it to be quite cute. :)

      Scroll down to the bottom of that page to see vid of our President attempting to not freak the fuck out while meeting that thing and it’s makers. That diplomacy for you. Money quote: “Interesting.”
