Archimedes: Chia Pet Meets Tamagotchi

Furo Archipic 02

Like the Tamagotchi, Archimedes is a little friend from Japan brought to you as a way to care for and consider the meaning of life. Unlike the Tamagotchi, which was digital, Archimedes is analog. You get a little guy in a glass vial with some seeds. Over the course of about a month the habitat will sprout, bloom, flourish, die, and decay. Little Archimedes survives the changes until the very end when he becomes mummified.

Whether you're looking for a philosophical muse or a new short term friend, Archimedes is here for you.
