Google Patents 'Creepy' Cuddly Toys

8 22.05.2015 Инфо

Google's Research and Development team has looked into making internet-connected toys that control smart home appliances.
The firm has published a patent that describes devices that would turn their heads towards users and listen to what they were saying, before sending commands to remote computer servers.
The three-year old patent was spotted recently by the technology law firm SmartUp.
It described the proposal as "one of Google's creepiest patents yet".
Privacy campaigners have also raised concerns.
A spokeswoman for Google was unable to say whether this was a product the firm might develop and sell.
