Lovable little Pleo gets dissected

What a sad, sad world we live in when even a cute little dinosaur robot isn’t safe from the cold curiosity of the perverted masses. iFixit.com, purveyors of many a disassembled iPod have turned their attention to UGOBE’s Pleo Camarasaurus. The results are pretty much as expected. Under Pleo’s single-piece rubber exterior lie 14 distinct motors, 100 gears, and 15 different circuit boards. Connected to a system of plastic “vertebrae,” the motors are able to fluidly control the dinosaur’s motion. Pretty sweet. Check out the gory pics if you’re curious, and enjoy the amazing attention to dissection that only iFixit.com seems to be brave enough to provide us with.
