Get Your Very Own Genetically Engineered Pet! Stephen Fung March 10, 2007 Extras Started as an artist’s criticism that “life itself is quickly becoming a processed commodity in the privatization of nature”, Genpets.com provides you with eerily life-like little latex animatrons who “hibernate” in their plastic package. Although it’s only a parody, the detailed website extends the illusion that the genetically engineered pets are available for purchase — and gets over a million hits a day! Extend a hand and shake a paw, Genpets™ are here. We’ve gone one step further by packaging the Genpets™ into plastic packages unlike any other. Each Genpet™ package has a fully functional heart rate monitor and Fresh Strip to better gauge the state of each pet while it lies in its hibernation state.
