February 9, 2005: When They Say "Keep Austin Weird" . . .

. . . I don't think this is what they had in mind. Headquartered in SJ Games' hometown, Perfect Petzzz are mechanical kittens and puppies designed to look like the real thing when sleeping. That's all they do. Sleep. For four months on one set of D batteries. And they snore ever-so-quietly. The designers were obviously aiming for "Awww, how cute!" but got closer to "Umm, that's a little creepy." Especially as the website goes on at some length about how much better Perfect Petzzz are than the real thing.
