Even your teddy bear can’t be trusted

Microsoft has apparently designed a teddy bear designed to function as a child monitor. It is equipped with a public address system, a microphone and cameras. It’s head can swivel to track the child it has been programmed to follow, using face recognition.

I remember having long private conversations with my teddy bear. Given that this one is made by Microsoft, that might still be possible.
