This is my first time making a topic so let hope it goes well^^ and this is not a duplicate...I think.

Anyways, getting to the main topic, http://www.genpets.com/index.php go to this site and tell me your opinion and please do know that the company already started testing by giving it to their employees for beta testing and yes..... these things are real, living things. Please give me your opinion on this and yeah.


ay Hello to the all New Genpets™ from Bio.Genica!
The Genpets™ are Pre-Packaged, Bioengineered pets implemented today!

That’s right, Genpets are not toys or robots. They are living, breathing genetic animals.

We use a process called "Zygote Micro Injection" which is quickly becoming a favourable method to combine DNA, or to insert certain proteins from different species. Most notably it was used in 1997 to splice mice with bioluminescent jellyfish (link) and has since been used to create glowing rabbits, pigs, fish, and monkeys (link). Since then, human DNA has been injected into rabbits, chimpanzees, spider DNA into sheep, and now, Genpets have arrived!

Read National Geographic's site for more information on human animal hybrids (link).

We’ve gone one step further by packaging the Genpets™ into plastic packages unlike any other. Each Genpet™ package has a fully functional heart rate monitor and Fresh Strip to better gauge the state of each pet while it lies in its hibernation state. More Info.

Gross. Just fucking disgusting. Those things are fugly and extremely ugly.

I'm not into the whole genetics and DNA shit. I don't really think we should be screwing around with it.

Forgot to mention.....They come colour coded and each colour represents a personality for example, red coloured packaging means that its gunna be a highly energetic pet
