The Classics are must-see, must-read, must-play works revered by The Verge staff. They supply glimpses of the future, glimpses of humanity, and a peek of our extremely souls. You should check them out.
The best method to clarify Dino Crisis is that it’s Local Evil with dinosaurs as an alternative of zombies. And while that may appear reductive, it’s additionally incredibly true– and it’s exactly what makes the game so wonderful. The change provides Dino Situation a larger variety of adversaries to concern and more explanations to fear them. Being entraped in a room with a frighteningly fast raptor is a ton scarier than being stuck in one with a shambling zombie, and throughout the whole experience you’re constantly mindful of the T-Rex that’s hiding about. That roar is really unsettling.

This is a video of Zack, whose parents decided to take him for a walk along the Christmas trail of WTF, where there’s an animatronic t-rex waving a holiday wreath around in its puny arms. Little Zack stops for a minute to take it all in, then decides ‘NO THANK YOU’ and takes off in the opposite direction. Me? I would have jumped on the back of that thing and ridden it straight through my school, stopping only in the cafeteria for a heaping serving of corn dogs and chocolate milk. “Sounds like you’ve really given this some thought.” Please, I have given this ALL my thoughts.
Hit the jump for the I would have at least tried to get it to fetch a stick.

In case you weren’t aware, Apple’s sold a whole lot of iPad 2s, so aside from the couple of bezel color choices or adding a Smart Cover, there’s not much you can do to make your tablet stand out from the crowd. Well, now there’s another option for the well-heeled gadget lover. Stuart Hughes is back with another custom gadget for the economic elites called the iPad 2 Gold History Edition. It’s got a solid gold backside, an Apple logo and home button crafted from a total of 65 flawless diamonds, plus a bezel crafted from Ammolite rock and slivers of thigh bone from a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Between all that ice and prehistoric bling, there won’t be a problem picking this iPad out of a lineup. What is a problem (for most of us, anyway) is the price: eight million dollars. We dig the dino look and all, but that’s an awfully hefty entrance fee — we’d rather buy a stock slate and take a few dozen trips to the final frontier instead.
Paleontologists in Canada have discovered a treasure trove of dinosaur feathers (I know — it’s still hard for me to believe too) trapped in amber that should shed some light on the evolution of feathered animals, and, God unwilling but let’s totally do it anyways, the potential cloning of my smexy reptilian brethren.
A team of scientists from the University of Alberta believes the feathers, 11 in total, are from the Late Cretaceous period, which spanned 99 million to 66 million years ago.
Discoveries of dinosaur feathers have helped reshape the public’s perception of the extinct creatures. Gone are the days when dinosaur skin was thought of as solely scaly.
“You can kind of track where the science is going by just looking at contemporary culture,” Dr. Norell said. “If you look at the original Jurassic Park film, all the dinosaurs looked like crocodiles. And today, you look at the most recent incarnations of them, and lots of them are fluffy.”
Whoa whoa whoa — fluffy dinosaurs?! THIS. CHANGES. EVERYTHING. But mostly just what I picture when I masturbate. Let’s clone ‘dem beeches already.

Thanks to Melissa, who cloned a pterodactyl and trained it as a winged mount but apparently they don’t understand power lines.
After many long months of waiting, the Ple0rb (Pleo Reborn, I guess they’re trying to say) is ready to ship. If you recall, the Pleo was the fun little dinosaur that everyone loved back in 2008 or so and no one but. Now, with improved features, the Ple0rb is ready to buzz his way into your heart.
The dino costs $ 469 and includes a number of new features:
Sense of Smell
Learning Stone Technology
Time of Day Awareness
Longer Battery Life
More Touch Sensors
The kit includes a tug-of-war toy as well as fun new moves based on the Pleo’s improved sensing network.
Innvo Labs wasn’t sharing a single detail about its new Pleo at CES last year, but the company’s being a bit more forthcoming now — not only did CEO Derek Dotson grant the baby dino community a lengthy interview detailing most every improvement, but its Hong Kong parent is apparently already selling the robot abroad. It’s called the Pleo Reborn (or “RB” for short) and the primary features are these: a lithium-polymer battery good for two hours of continuous use, an RFID “sense of smell” that lets it interact with a variety of optional accessories to “eat,” take medicine and learn new tricks, plus a much tougher hide.
The little creature’s also got four additional touch sensors, a temperature sensor, a gravity sensor and an internal clock to tell the time of day, improved motors, and basic voice recognition — and the Hong Kong packaging suggests the dinos will even come in two different sexes. User marcimarc444 claims to have paid roughly $ 500 for the one pictured above at the Hong Kong Electronic Show, and though we don’t have US pricing or availability at this point, the CEO did suggest that “very, very limited” quantities would be available later this month. Find the full interview and a testimonial at the links below, and watch the Pleo RB in action right after the break.
