Segatoys Dream Squirrels: Do Androids Dream of Electric Acorns?
August 1st, 2009
Nope, you’re not looking at Chip and Dale here. These fuzzy, furry creations are the latest robotic animal creations from the demented sick creative minds of SegaToys Japan.
I suppose the Yumepet Dream Squirrel is actually pretty cute. As a matter of fact, he’s so syrupy sweet that I think I’m gonna puke. Just stroke the little guy between the ears, and he’ll start wriggling around – sorta like the gopher in Caddyshack – but not really. According to Google’s Japanese translation: 1) MOZOMOZO move and press the stomach; 2) Press the tummy and the other stops; 3) The motion is soothing and pleasant person holds in his hand. Understood?
You can start building your very own Dream Squirrel army by heading over to AudioCubes and plunking down $29.95 (USD). They’re available in yellow or brown furtypes, and small enough to fit in your hand. You can check out the entire series of robotic Anipals over at SegaToys Japan.
