Oh, Science, you still haven’t quite given me that pet Stegosaurus, but I’d be okay I guess if I had one of these instead–at least in the meantime. Of course, I’ll have to pick up a few more jobs and maybe sell a kidney or three (wait, what?) because this presumably lifelike hand-sculpted exterior over a frame of steel and aluminum, operated by remote servos and silent, pneumatic air-operated cams is $350,000.
Why do I want one? It’s not the tracking cams behind each eye, stomping front foreleg, automated interactions or even the sheer awesomeness of calling friends to come over and look at my 20-foot long triceratops–it’s the “fortissimo bellowing” promised in the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog. Fortissimo bellowing?! I’d buy another 5-year-old if they had that kind of advertising.
If you do have a spare $350K in your pocket, go pick one up now at Hammacher Schlemmer.
