The Pleo is described as a 'lifeform' by its manufacturers Ugobe, and is said to 'feel' pain, have its own rudimentary emotions and can yawn, hiccup and sneeze.

A prototype of the toy, designed by the American Caleb Chung

And what is unpleasant...eating your face while you sleep.

This must be stopped.

I wonder if you called 1-800-Lawyer you could get one to file suit against robot makers as they represent a threat to all human life?
