Dino Pet, the New Living, Interactive, Bioluminescent Pet
Dino Pet gives "Man's Best Friend" a whole new meaning with this new illuminated pet for tons of fun and less cleanup.Have you ever wanted an interactive pet that uses naturally occurring bioluminescence to glow brilliantly when you play with it at night? Then the Dino Pet by BioPop is just for you! It's cleaner than dogs, eats less than a baby, and smells better than anyone. Anyone.
The Dino Pet magically lights up like a meteor show and is triggered with constant movement. It's small enough to carry with one hand, is powered by sunlight, water, and nutrients, and requires no batteries or charging to operate.
So how does it work? This new illuminated pet was created by a group of scientists who constructed a way to sustain biological light using bioluminescent, single-celled plankton called dinoflagellates as a possible light source. Specifically, they are a marine species of unicellular non-toxic phytoplankton known as Pyrocystis fusiformis.
How is everything held together? The outer shell of the Dino Pet is made from an ABS plastic to ensure durability and safe keeping of the liquid inside.
To operate, the Dino Pet requires moderate lighting 8-14 hours per day, temperatures around 69 degrees Fahrenheit, or a range from 62 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit will do, and small weekly feedings of BioPop Dino Food that you can get through the company's website.
Your Dino Pet will lose light relatively quickly, but a gentle rocking back and forth or good, solid movement will light it back up again. The phytoplankton only respond during the night, so if you notice it's not working during the day, don't worry! Just give it plenty of sunlight at the right temperature and amount of food and you'll be able to enjoy the breathtaking light show provided by your Dino Pet.
Dino Pet would make a great gift for friends, family, and kids. It's cool to see technology used for new concepts, especially in fun and entertaining ways.
BioPop has a limited sale going on for the Dino Pet, but you can get it now on their website for a great price.
