Ahhh! Not a good thing to look at if you’re prone to nightmares. The creators of Genpets, Bio.Genica, claim to use “zygote micro injection” to combine DNA from different species. Genpets come with color-coded personalities and a heart monitor that tells you if your Genpet has already kicked the bucket. They hibernate while still in the package but upon awakening, they bond with the first person they see just like baby ducklings. They’re touted to be:
- Allergen Free
- Child Safe
- Low Maintenance
- Life Perfected
No mention of psychological trauma induced by seeing nasty genetically engineered putty babies around the house.*
*Genpets are actually biotech art.
