I was reading this to my younger cousin and she now has an imaginary friend who is a Ro-pet.

That made me laugh out loud with joy. Tell me.  what's her Ro-pet like?  Is it a pony, or some other animal?

Basically Ro-Pets are artificially created machines that simulate the behaviour of the creatures that they appear to be based off of, do they have an artificially constructed nervous system and articulation similar to the Gekkos and Scarabs from MGS4?

I haven't played MGS, so I can't say, however ro-pets is an all encompasing turm for robotic pet.  so no one description of what they are would surfice.

the cheaper ro-pets look like mechines, but the expsnsive ones look like Tia, or even real household pets. with examples of everything in between.

expensive ones with synthetic flesh would need a sense of touch to prevent self inflicted damage.  As such they would need some form of nervous system, be it purely synthetic, or if they utalized biological skin (like the T1000 from the therminator movies) they would utalize an interface between there computer brain and the nervous system inherant in the biological skin.

we can now transfer signals from nerve endings to cables as shown in lab experiments with mice, so this is perfectly feasible.

You haven't played MGS yet? if you have a PS Game Console System, the genre is HIGHLY recommended.

Also that "lab experiments with mice" thing, gross and personally immoral.

I wonder how smart ro-pets are? And I wonder how common genetically engineered biological intelligences are?

ro-pets intelegence is as varied as the intelegence of real pets.  only more so.  they renge from being so dumb they walk into a wall untill picked up and turned around, all the way up to being able to think like a human.  (above human intelect is illegal, for obvious reasons)

as for how common biological inelligences are... well, we have Ro-pets and AI, predictable and instantly replicatable.  why do we want squishey biological intellegences that take decades to mature to an uncertain result with no way of ensuring they don't rise up against there human overlords?

Very rare is the answer.  Though I don't think she'll be rising up against her human opressors any time soon.  gonna have to watch out for those dangerous teenage years mind ^^

If I brought a pet unicorn (or alicorn) to class that's not what would happen at all.

this now gives us one of two possible leads.

1) the class will belittle the miraculous creature of science and magic, squandering humanities connection to these creatures in the future.

2) the class will be fascinated and intrigued with Celestia and start asking questions that are hard to explain.   <br / />

3) They think it's just a robotic toy.

herostalker Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2014

no no,

that's still a part of number 1.

you see if the children excepted little Celestia as a magical "Creature" they would treat her as a living sentient being.

belittling would include (but is not limited to) thinking she is a toy, animatronic, or lower intelligence animal.

I wonder why EVERYONE seems to be thinking *first* that she's a robot ?

I mean... have you seen some of those Hollywood stars' animal ? A pink-dyed pony, with a glued horn wouldn't be that strange in our reality.

I wonder, why after several pages of dropping the word Ro-pet into the comic.  it is only now that people are paying attention to it.  perhaps it is because it is the first time it is being used by someone in a position of respect, rather than an antagonist.

I find this quite interesting.

well in that case.  yes it would be strange.  Celestia is by no means just a normal pony with added horns and wings glued on.  If you compare the shape of her she bares about as much resemblance to a natural pony as a human does to a baboon.

It wouldn't matter how much you disguised a pony.  you could never make it look anything like Tia.  similarly, Tia is unmistakably NOT a natural pony.

Abrr2000 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
he was fired because the director thought he had wasted money on something useless and unsellable, as something already occupied that market... i.e. ro-pets.  trouble is without establishing the existence of Ro-pets and what they are, this explanation would have been meaningless.  hence why I haven't given it till now.

And that (What the director did) Was putting two and two together, And getting 3 or 5 (Or zero.)

And yeah, I know what you mean with not explaining why he was fired until now.
