Chatty WikiBear is the Teddy Ruxpin of Your Dreams, Or Nightmares [Video]

Yes, it talks back.

This is what happens when you put Siri’s brains inside an adorable teddy bear. WikiBear can carry out a real converation with you thanks to a Bluetooth connection to an AI engine running on a smartphone. “Wiki,” as it’s known, pays attention to you, learns your likes and dislikes, and can even tell you jokes. It’s cute, amazing, and creepy all in one magical (and soft) little package. We saw an early prototype of the bear, and we’re promised its voice and responsiveness will sound less, uh, terrifying when the final product comes out later this year.
