Patents are interesting beasts. Whilst more often than not they never amount to anything, patents give us a little glimpse into what companies are thinking.
This one from Sony is certainly different. Initially filed in 2008, the patent is for an interactive
evil troll doll that has various features such as articulated limbs, pressure sensors, a store for liquid, voice recognition and a wireless receiver. It is said to work with the PS3 and PSP.
It’s a shame it looks like it would kill you in your sleep. Save me, Elmo!
