Just when you think Google (read: our real-life Skynet) can’t get any creepier, they go and aspire.
Now the megacorporation has patented a fun new toy that comes complete with hidden microphones and cameras, spies on your child’s activities and conversations, responds to his or her social cues, and can control smart devices in your home.
The patent abstract says:
An anthropomorphic device, perhaps in the form factor of a doll or toy, may be configured to control one or more media devices. Upon reception or a detection of a social cue, such as movement and/or spoken word or phrase, the anthropomorphic device may aim its gaze at the source of the social cue. In response to receiving a voice command, the anthropomorphic device may interpret the voice command and map it to a media device command. Then, the anthropomorphic device may transmit the media device command to a media device, instructing the media device to change state.
Let’s see… hidden microphones, hidden cameras, facial and voice recognition, motion detection… the only thing missing from this “toy” is an iris scanner and a DNA reader. (Of course, that’s probably coming soon enough…)
