ABSTRACT
The article deals with the efforts by Caleb Chung and his colleagues at Ugobe Inc. to create a designer life form, a creature that can elicit the same cooing and warm fuzzy feelings as a new puppy. When Chung showed off Pleo earlier in 2006 at a technology conference, 200 people sang happy birthday to the robot. Working with a friend, Chung came up with software that animates a four-legged robot with balanced, smooth motions.
