Is this creepy?
Wappy Dog teaches young gamers to raise their very own "puppy" in both the real and virtual worlds and teach it cool tricks, play mini-games together and even converse. (And this ain't no Tomagotchi either!)
The player’s interaction with their Wappy Dog determines the pet’s constantly evolving personality, skills, and happiness.
In "home mode" the pet takes the form of the robot dog, and in "travel mode" owners can play with their "friend" through their Nintendo DS.
In a Press statment Nintendo said:
“This one-of-a-kind toy and video game combines a strong emotional bond and exciting virtual experience with the interaction of a physical pet. Wappy Dog is a truly innovative next generation toy and video game that gives kids an instant companion.”
We hope this product helps teach kids (or whoever) how be a good pet owner BUT we're worried that a virtual dog might take the place of a animal that needs a home.
