New Google technology transforms cute teddy bears into surveillance bots
4 A threat to family and children privacy
Do you really want a creepy toy in the house which can monitor each and every movement in the house by anyone? That Teddy bear in the house can very well pick up a sentence uttered in normal occurrence, which can be conceived as a threat and it can alert the authorities and trap you in your house. It can do that by shutting the power to the home and shutting your security system of the house.
Also the children in the house will never be able to play and live freely if they are under constant supervision and know that their activities are being watched and recorded every minute of the day. With the scandal of cell phone tapping and records being shared with government coming into light, do the general public really want another invasion of their privacy.
