Google patents creepy smart toys that interact with kids On top of interacting with kids, the toys could be used to control media devices like TVs, DVD players and even smart home devices like thermostats. All that may have seemed like a good idea when the patent was filed in 2012 (it was granted last Thursday), but a lot has changed since then, privacy-wise. Big Brother Watch told the BBC that "the privacy concerns are clear when devices have the capacity to record conversations and log activity... (especially) when those devices are aimed at children." The lawyer who spotted the patent put it more succinctly, saying the "creepy" idea belonged "in a horror film." On the other hand, Google could de-creep such a device by limiting its servers' access to voice commands, which it records through "OK Google" anyway.
New Google Patent: Smart Toys that Connect to Smart Homes A few months ago, the Internet was abuzz with the news of a Wi-Fi-connected Barbie that has Siri-like powers. Google was way ahead of Mattel, according to a patent the search engine giant filed three years ago. StartUp, a legal technology firm, spotted the patent published on May 21, according to BBC. This technology could enable a stuffed animal to turn its head and listen to you before transmitting commands to other smart home devices. “Upon reception or a detection of a social cue, such as a movement and/or a spoken word or phrase, the anthropomorphic device may aim its gaze at the source of the social cue,” the patent specifies. The patent dates back to February 2012, meaning Google has been thinking about creating these toys for quite some time.

Google patents smart 'toys' that could spy on children and control home Buzz Lightyear and Woody may have been able to switch lights on and off and drive remote controlled cars, but toys of the future could take control of all sorts of household appliances and even spy on their owners too. The internet-connected devices would listen for instructions and interact with homeowners to switch lights on and off or turn on household appliances upon a simple vocal command, for example. Google has published a patent that suggests creepy-looking teddy bears and rabbits (pictured) could interact with homeowners to switch lights on and off and turn on appliances with a simple vocal command The toys, dreamed up by Google's secretive R&D division, have captured the attention of privacy campaigners, because they contain microphones, speakers and cameras.
