  • Most attention at CES is on things like 3D televisions and wristwatch cellphones, but those with a little turbonerd DNA are rewarded when they stop by Mattel's booth. Not only is the toy giant showing off the that lets you manipulate a ball with your thoughts, but Mattels' upcoming line of Xtractaurs dinosaur toys could have the juice to be one of this holiday's biggest hits. The Xtractaurs are a collection of plastic dinosaur action figures with little plugs somewhere on their hides. When the dino is prodded with a light-up extraction gun, DNA is "pulled" from the mighty beast and uploaded to an online arena for gene manipulation, minigames, and virtual prehistoric combat.

  • Xtractaurs toys come with a USB-enabled “DNA Extractor” tool. When the consumer connects the DNA Extractor to their computer they are taken to a virtual lab where they can analyze the dinosaur’s DNA and mix it with other dinosaurs to create hybrids. The players train their dinosaurs, take them on virtual adventures, and do battle with other dinosaurs.

    Put your kids on the path to a long and satisfying career in the field of bio-engineering with Mattel’s new Xtractaurs dinosaur toys. A $20 starter kit comes with what appears to be a T-Rex as well as an ‘extraction gun’ which is used to sample the dinosaur’s DNA. The gun is connected to your PC and the DNA data gets uploaded to the Xtractaurs website where the sampled dinosaur then comes to life.
