Animoid

An artificial snake examined by Rick Deckard

Animoid was a term for synthetic organisms that were designed and created to mirror animals in both behavior and habitat.

DescriptionEdit

By 2019, a market for animoids came into being in the Los Angeles, provided by designers such as Abdul Ben Hassan. Hassan specifically dealt with snakes, but animoids were also known to exist for owls, ostriches,[1] and dogs.[2]

Additionally, animoids were known to be "very" expensive.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

While the explanation for the ubiquity of animoids is not explained in the films, the source novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, states that most animals became endangered or extinct due to the presence of radioactive dust. This prompted the market of artificial animals, as the ownership of an animal is seen as a status symbol.
