A couple of days ago I read on the internet about the controversy Genpets has created when they announced and released their new children doll/pet line. I read into it. The movie child’s play (AKA Chucky) came to mind as I read more about this THING.

From the Site

Bio-Genica is a Bioengineering Company that has combined, and modified existing DNA to create the Genpets lineup. Genpets have blood, bones, and muscle; they will bleed if you cut them, and die if mistreated just like any other animal. The electronic components are only in the packages and are for basic life support, outside of the packages the Genpets are wholly organic.

Its a living organic Thing, or a pet as they refer to it, You buy it for your children. And they , the Pets, “wake up” when you open the packaging. They recognize the first face they see and get attached to it. They Live up to 1 or 3 years, depends on the type of animal you buy.

They have feelings and emotions. they don’t scream when you cut them because they lack complex vocal cords. They do however produce different kind of noises. Here watch this VIDEO.

I’m beyond freaked out.

Thanks blasha for providing the video & bringing this up ๐Ÿ™‚

EDIT: Oppppss!

Turned out the whole thing is fake and was a result of an artist imagination as to what would come out of real DNA and Bioengineering experiments with pets. Thanks Z for clearing it up.

From the Artist behind this idea:

To dismiss Genpets as a ‘hoax’ would be to completely miss the point. The spirit of art is to create an illusion. Genpets is designed ‘as is’ to help the viewer ponder the idea a bit longer.

Hate to burst the excitement bubble, but it’s simply an art project by a guy named Adam Brandejs..

Pretty interesting way to prove a point though.. to examine a proper response to an idea. Check out the Nike flesh shoe.

I had a postabout it too. ALl what it takes was to google “genpets” in wikipedia and you would find out the reason behind this “HOAX” and how he managed to make it so real to the point of creating a fake website !

I do felt stupid after knownig that it was fake. We had it in newspapers here and people started sending emails and stuff… !!!! but it is fake.. a real way of trying to believe in a “hoax”
