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?
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:
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

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.
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.

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