From the Folks Who Brought You Petz.... Babyz

Boot Camp feature for Friday, November 26, 1999

They're cute, they're cuddly....and they're on your computer. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. From the company that created virtual Dogz and virtual Catz....comes Babyz....

"Babyz, your virtual bundle of joy, is an interactive game where you play with babies on the computer desktop. And you raise them and you teach them different words, you teach them the name of different objects through voice recognition and throughout time, they learn and grow and become smarter because you've raised them and trained them like that."

Kristen Agin of Mindscape. Use your mouse and your microphone to play cootchy coo....or....

"Here we have a baby named Jenny. Piano. Pano. Good Jenny. So she has learned to say piano because we've taught her through voice recognition that's how to say piano."

Change your baby, feed your baby, play and watch it grow....

"They get to about one and a half, two years old, where they just start to learn how to walk. And your baby will be as smart and advanced as you have taught your baby to be."

The price, under thirty dollars. A fun gift for parents to be. You can visit the online adoption center at babyz.net.
