The GenPets

13 Jun 2006

Looking for a new pet? Try this: Genpets are living, breathing mammals. Bio-Genica is a Bio-engineering Company that has combined, and modified existing DNA to create the Genpets lineup. Genpets are flesh and blood just like any other animal. How do Genpets stay alive in the packages? While the Genpets™ hang on retail shelves they are in a chemically induced type of hibernation controlled by a protein in the packages’ nutrient supply tubes. This was a natural trait found in many seasonal animals that would normally hibernate in colder northern climates that has been added to the Genpet line. This also ensures comfort for the Genpets™ while they are on store shelves.


Meet the Genpets | Thanks, Ben

    what exactly do they mean by alive. They have no souls. It’s not human and it’s not right. I’ve seen them only in packages, we have seen them with their eyes open or how they movie around.

    It’s all just a joke. READ THE FIRST LINK. None of its realize, its just an artistic project.

    So, I’m not understanding. Are these real creatures? Or are they just a toy? The link says both. And also, where can you buy them? I’d like to see them for myself. Thanks.

    It’s an art project. The creatures are handmade and in the fantasy of the artist, they are real. In real life, they aren’t. Maybe if you contact the artist you can buy one?

    man all this artist stuff is beside the point, what if there is something like this being developed? but if it has a brain it might be able to think?!?!?!
