This Talking Teddy Bear Uses Technology Similar to Siri

This talking teddy bear says it uses technology that's like "Siri on steroids" when asked how it is able to converse fluently. Using a special software, this voice-activated toy talks back to humans. Not only does it interact naturally, but Supertoy Teddy also pulls out facts or statistics from its programmed knowledge navigator; it can even tell jokes.

If you've seen the movie 'Ted,' you probably understand where UK-based company Supertoy Robotics got the idea. The quick-witted teddy bear has a robotic mouth that moves for a realistic appearance. Its insides are hooked up to a WiFi-activated computer system. If you've always wished your teddy bear could respond to you as a child, this creation will blow your mind. I think it's safe to say that robotic technology has come so far to fulfill many people's childhood wishes.

This talking bear is currently raising funds on Kickstarter.
