Pleo - Three Laws of UGOBE Life Forms
Pictures, Videos, and more Information on Pleo.
To understand Pleo you have to understand the company behind it, UGOBE. They are very passionate about Pleo and when you see their laws for what a UGOBE Life Form must be, it's easy to understand the intensity of thought behind Pleo's construction. The three laws are:
- A UGOBE Life form shall have the ability to feel and convey emotions. Through a combination of physical appearance, emotive gesture and artificial intelligence, UGOBE Life forms will speak in this very human dialect.
- A UGOBE Life form will be aware of itself and its environment. Through a combination of sensors including sight, sound, touch and motion, a UGOBE Life form will be able to feel, explore and interpret its world.
- A UGOBE Life form will evolve over time. As its environment and human interactions change, a UGOBE Life form will learn, adapt and change with them.
From the video I am sure that Pleo does indeed convey emotions so, does Pleo feel emotions? Perhaps soon we will be asking "Does Pleo dream?". I don't know the answer to that, but I can say with certainty that millions of children and adults will be dreaming of Pleo.
