Pleo Delayed for More Improvements


PC magazine reports that robotic dinosaur Pleo will be delayed until the summer. 

In a letter to a Pleo friends and fans mailing list, inventor Caleb Chung explained that Ugobe has decided to enhance the robot dinosaur’s sound with new speakers and increased audio levels and an expanded sound library.

The company has also been paying close attention to how people have been interacting with the various prototypes. Apparently people like to stroke Pleo under its chin, even though it has no sensors there. Now the shipping version of robot will have a chin sensor, bringing the total number of sensors to 35.
