Teddy Ruxpin, 2017 version

From the “Please stop fucking up my childhood … Hey wait will this thing have an API?” Dept.:

Teddy Ruxpin is back — again — and this time, the creepy/adorable stuffed toy comes with animated, emoji-like eyes. The bear can blink, turn its irises into snowflakes and transform them into hearts and flowers. It can even suspiciously narrow its eyes at you, like it already knows you’d want to toss it in the trash after it creeps you out one too many times in the middle of the night.

Teddy Ruxpin was the first piece of tech I ever took apart. I can’t wait to buy at least two of these so I can take one of them apart too and see how it works and if I can hack it.
