The Tweetmeme Pleo

28th July, 2009

You may have seen some recent tweets about our recently-hatched Pleo life form that has been making its way around the Tweetmeme office! Our frontend developer Daniel hatched him last Friday, and he’s been on almost permanently (while not charging at least!)

From sitting on our desk to wandering around the office, he seems to have kept the team entertained in the last few days - on top of the Nabaztag we already had…

Pleo has touch sensors under his chin, on his head, across his back and on his legs. He can respond to all kinds of input, with a colour camera on his nose, infrared sensors, microphones and more. Here are some more pics of the Pleo.
