Carlsbad, CA, United States, 2013/08/27 - The Dino Pet is fun, renewable, and magical by nature. Yonder announces plans to augment the Dino Pet experience through an augmented reality app - YonderBiology.com.
Yonder Biology unveiled on August 13th, a remarkable new project that had been in the works over the last year... the world’s first bioluminescent pet -- a Dino Pet.
The Dino Pet redefines the whole Plant-Pet paradigm. It is a living pet that requires indirect sunlight during the day and gives you a wondrous light show when you play with it at night.
“Through crowd funding, we aim to create an interactive toy that teaches kids that magic is found in understanding the world around you. To understand and to work with Nature is paramount to living more sustainably. Harnessing biology to produce energy, medicines and entertainment is the future”, says Andy Bass, co-founder of Yonder Biology. “Before discovering a pet, we applied these awesome bioluminescent creatures in our bio light. Our hope is the Dino Pet will inspire young minds to take an interest in biology and shape the way we live in the future.”
The Dino Pets are available through a Kickstarter campaign that runs through September 15th, 2013. The Dino Pet project hit the funding goal of $50,000.00 on August 21st, 2013, after only eight days of crowd funding!
Yonder Biology unveils today plans to enhance its already successful Dino Pet Kickstarter campaign with an augmented reality experience. The project’s backers must collectively raise the campaign’s total pledge to $150,000 to receive the augmented reality app.
“We’d like to bring the Dino Pet and story book to life by entering the Dino Pet’s world through augmented reality. You’ll be able to manipulate and interact with the Dino Pet in its environment.”, says Paul Taylor, from Yonder Biology and Paul Dennis Taylor Entertainment. “You’ll be able to fully immerse yourself in the Dino Pet’s world using this augmented reality app.”
