Pleo Wows Them In Boise!
Pictures, Videos, and more Information on Pleo.
Some very lucky coffee shop patrons in Boise, Idaho got an impromptu performance from Pleo. Caleb Chung, the star inventor of Pleo, UGOBE's robot dinosaur, gave the demonstration himself. The Salt Lake Tribune, a popular local newspaper, covered the event with glowing praise. Here are two quotes from the article:
"At a coffee shop in the Boise suburb of Eagle, Pleo charmed people at neighboring tables with his impromptu performance. He wagged his tail and walked playfully across the table, stopping when he sensed the edge was near. Pleo isn't alive, but you wouldn't know it by his charismatic performance."Furby is the smash hit lovable animated toy that launched Caleb Chung into toymaker stardom.
"Based on early interest from retailers and the buzz created online, Pleo is already shaping up to eclipse Furby."
