Last month i was in the hospital with my wife while she had a lengthy surgery and i was reading everything I could get my hands on. I read an article in a magazine and i can't remember for the life of me what it was but it was about a Japaneese company genetically engeneering large animals into smaller animals like an elephant the size of a dog full grown. The article talked about how people will be able to have these animals like minature rhinos or elephants exc for pets. I was half way through the article when i got called back to see my wife and i didn't get to finish and i was wondering if anyone heard of this or maybe had a link because i would like to find out more on this

I couldn't find anything on miniature elephants and rhinos, but maybe you'd be interested in one of these.

www.genpets.com...

Whuh?
That's the craziest f*#@&^g I've ever seen!
That can't be real, can it?
Oh man, those are going to make great stocking stuffers.
I wonder if you can get several of them and have a genpet gladiatorial arena?
I can picture all of the neat accessories for these things...
Little helmets and sets or armour.
Little skateboards or lawn mowers.
Oh joy!
I'm going to teach mine how to tie my shoes and make me coffee!!

Yeah, just so you all know, I was only kidding about what I said.
Actually, I find this quite horrifying.
Did anyone read the part about the company selling a "tooth remover kit" to prevent bite injuries?
"Limited vocal chords for the convenience of parents"?
Seriously, this is ridiculous.
It has to be some kind of joke.
Right?...

That, I can full heartedly say is not real, not only do we not
have the technology required to create a hybrid (it looks like
one, so I figure it is) like that, but the sheer fact that itis in a
plastic container should tell you it's fake, all living things need
air, and that thing is'nt getting any air supply.

Plus, that kind of thing would'nt be allowed by law.

heh, I've come across that website before, and those things are not fake, their living breathing... things.

Their somehow genetically created animal things with limited movements and emotions, whatever else they do.

All I'm sure of if I ever got one I'd put it in a sack and bash it against a brick wall. (NOT animal cruelty)


okay from what i remember they come wrapped in platic because their in a state of "hibernation" You unwrap them to revive them and they come to life!

You can feed your genpet, and interact with them, and I think they even produce feces..


It might be a fake, but from their website it looks like a legitimate (mad) company selling a product. Remember thier not animals so to speak.

Would you buy one?

And you know this how?
Have you ever actually purchased one of these so called
genpets?

Again, we do not have the technology to genetically create
animals.

Regardless of what you may think, that would be animal
cruelty, it would'nt matter if they were creatred by man
or nature, they would still be living, breathing things.

Again, I have to say this, we do not have the technology
to insert hibernative genes into an animal.

And besides that, even if it's in hibernation, it still breathes.

And we are only just now starting to experiment with cryo-
stasis.

You say it might be fake, yet above you said you knew it
was real.




Would you buy one?


No, we should'nt create things like that, that are programmed
to live incredibly short lives, and be sold as a commodity and
not treated as a living thing.

Naw those are real! I bought one last year and now all the neighborhood cats don't come anywhere near! They're awesome! Never have to wash the dishes, fertilize the lawn, or go to the doctor! Sometimes it even posts for me!


>
on a side note (and on a side I mean... not on a side) I can't find anything on miniphants. The only thing I know of is the cross-bred pot belly elephant. But...

Hehehe... I don't want to burst anyone's bubble but there's nothing real about the GenPet. It's an artist's creation which evolved into a full blown hoax.


Like similar items we've been asked about, Genpets are actually artworks — in this case plastic and latex sculptures (including circuitry and robotics) created by 24-year-old Canadian commercial artist Adam Brandejs. As the artist explained in conjunction with a 2005 exhibition of his work, the point of Genpets is to get the public thinking about the concept of bioengineering and how they feel about where that science might lead us:

Source: Snopes


All the work was hand done by the artist Adam Brandejs, with assistance from makeup artist Crystal Pallister for the colouring of the creatures. the pictures show the actual 19 genpet units that display at art galleries. Genpets have been displayed at over 10 different Fine Art galleries from Canada to Switzerland

Now could those who said they've seen/owned a GenPet please raise their hands again...


Edit: Oops... Hope I didn't spoil your joke, Grady...

Loved the poster who decided we're 'living in the Last Days' after looking at the Bio-Genica site.

Strike one for Adam Brandejs, if that's really the guy's name.

Party Pooper!
there was a thread on them a few months ago. Bioengineered pets!

But on miniature elephants, here's something close enough. Elephant Shrew

They're sooo cuuuuuuuuute!

Oh, and this may indeed be the article the OP was interested in. The Nano-Pet Epoch

What does it boil down to? Tiny endangered animals for every room of the home! Wildlife will be miniaturized for your companionship, convenience and their own survival. Where once there were only cats and dogs, there will now be minute herds of elephants thundering around under the bed, and rhinos you can hold in the palm of your hand.

Yep, it just wouldn't be ATS if it weren't for these people.

That site is kind of disturbing.
