Scottish toy company H. Grossman has decided that kids are tired of inanimate plastic dinosaurs. Apparently, today's young'uns need interaction and a grander sense of scale. So the company plans to release a $US14,000+ dinosaur toy called the Megasaur for privileged children around the world.
From the sounds of it the Megasaur will do everything but get up and chase you around the house, which is probably a good thing. Toy or not, a 180cm tall mechanical monstrosity like this is bound to cause some serious damage if it gets out of control.
The head, the limbs, the arms, and the eyes all feature realistic movements and sounds — at least what we assume to be realistic since these creatures died off well before the wealthy needed another way to completely spoil their children. [SourceWire via DamnGeeky]
