Wired Magazine Article and Update On Pleo Pre-Release Date

The January 2007 issue of Wired magazine has a wonderful article on Ugobe, Caleb Chung, and Pleo. If you're not a subscriber, I strongly suggest you run out and get this latest issue from a local book store or magazine stand.

It's an entertaining and well written article that not only talks about Pleo, but gives insight as to how Caleb's background as a comedian, mime, and Hollywood stunt man had a direct powerful impact on Pleo's breathtakingly real body movements. On more than one occasion the author, Clive Thompson, talks about Caleb's amazing ability to pantomime the movements of different animals and even popular robots. This ability and Caleb's strong belief in "emotion through motion" have resulted in a baby dinosaur that makes Clive state right at the top of the article:

"You are so going to want one!"

The important news update given by the article is that "Ugobe will begin taking pre-orders for the Pleo on its web site on February 3, 2007". As I mentioned in my last post, Ugobe's public relations firm Shiftcomm was told me that the latest release date for Pleo is the second quarter of next year.

The following is additional information given to me in a user comment on a previous blog post by degers (thank you degers):

"There was actually a mistake in the press coverage you read that mentioned that 12/24 online pre-order date. We will start taking pre-orders in Q1 2007 (exact date TBD). The pre-orders will only be for the U.S. at the beginning but we plan to role Pleo out to the U.K. before the end of 2007.

Hello everyone!

Ugobe's public relations firm Shiftcomm was kind enough to give me the latest release date for Pleo. Pleo is scheduled to hit store shelves early in the second quarter of next year, 2007.

Once I got any new information on pre-ordering or any other details, I'll let you know.

Also, just a reminder, if you want to ask questions about Pleo and Ugobe, or talk to other enthusiastic Pleo owners-to-be like myself, join the Pleo forum and stay a while. It's free and it's fun!

Until next time...
