Sorry, Akira was the first thing that came to mind

Didn't Asimov write a short story about this in "I Robot"? As I remember, it didn't end well.
2005-03-04 10:19:40 PM  
..just like the clown in Poltergeist...

Yet another way for parents to deceive their children, and a big faceless corporation somewhere making a buck off of it. Lovely!
2005-03-04 10:21:25 PM  
That just helped convince me to watch "A.I." tonight.
2005-03-04 10:22:15 PM  
Can't sleep, clown'll eat me.

Teddy Ruxpin is suddenly antiquated and jealous.
2005-03-04 10:24:13 PM  
Reactions of the kids so far...

2005-03-04 10:24:31 PM  
No childhood nightmare could possibly be worse than that scene from Akira... shudder...

Props to AlgaeRancher, though.

Police: "Why did you kill your parents?"
Little Suzy: "Because my teddy bear told me to."

Wait, it's by Microsoft?

i guess their sanity meter is running a little low.

/ a little obscure but someone must know this.
2005-03-04 10:34:31 PM  

I'm gonna have nightmares imagining it watching and talking to me.
2005-03-04 10:34:59 PM  
If Microsoft designed them, they'll stop working due to a security bug a couple of days after their release. The children are safe.... until the fifth patch. Then it's some Akira goodness.

But I'm not sleeping tonight regardless.

Good job Microsuck, but 3 years to late.

In Philip K. Dick's short story "Type II" which became the movie "Screamers," the Type III robot was a small boy named David, carrying a Teddy.

It makes for a far more interesting set of movies to watch to view "A.I." and then "SCREAMERS" (as a potential sequel made years before the other).

I am not a toy.
2005-03-04 10:58:47 PM  
Is it a teddy bear from the future sent back to kill Sarah Conner?

The designer is quoted as saying "I MAKE friends. They're toys. My friends are toys. I make them."

Just in time for Christmas...
2005-03-04 11:22:50 PM  
... to welcome our teddy bear overlords...
2005-03-04 11:26:55 PM  
Black eyes... dead eyes... like a doll's eyes.
2005-03-04 11:47:02 PM  
That's an awesome image, Obscure.

Oh, shut up and get in the shark's mouth, Quint.

Parents will stop watching their kids through the teddy once they realize kids jerk off.
2005-03-05 12:07:31 AM  
I have small children so I sort of understand the concept of this. But I was also a teenager once and you know there will be parents out there setting these harmless teddys' in their kids rooms just to see what they are up to. now for some reason that feels like a serious violation to me. Am I wrong? Maybe when my kids are teenagers I'll get it.
2005-03-05 12:08:59 AM  
Wait until Cult of the Dead Cow releases the backdoor orafice for this... I cannot wait to remotely destroy a young childs life!
2005-03-05 12:31:01 AM  
Every once in a while you read a news item about somebody whose neurons aren't all firing... and they think their kid's teddy bear (or their own teddy bear), etc., is filled with electronics that spy on them. AND THEN THEY GO ON AN APEshiat RAMPAGE!! Ans now their delusions have COME TRUE! Aiee!
2005-03-05 12:37:06 AM

Unless you want to watch your kids jerk off I wouldn't recommend it. Seriously, parenting the old fashioned way has it's advantages. You barge in and they are in bed. They jump and stuff a magazine under the covers and act weird. You know what you just caught them doing Wout having to see it.

Some things are best left to the imagination.
2005-03-05 12:37:24 AM  
thanks to the images on here...i will not sleep for a week.

On another note..this teddy bear thing is a bit too freaky for me.
2005-03-05 12:40:09 AM  

That's awsome, what is it?
2005-03-05 12:48:27 AM  
Microsoft and Sony should get these things together and use the Aibo walker to make a live action roaming teddy bear nanny cam. Imagine the nightmare your kids will be having when the freaking teddy leaves the chair and marche into the hall to see if the babysitter is raiding the fridge and drinking all the beer.
