Google Patents Chucky the Killer Doll, but Disguised as a Teddy Bear


chucky google toys

If you haven’t seen the 80s cult classic horror film Chucky, allow me to be your professor in crappy (but awesome) cinema. Chucky is a movie that revolves around a murdering sentient doll that had a serial killer’s soul transferred into it via a voodoo ritual. That’s as 80s as a premise could be. The doll not only murders a slew of people for tickles and giggles, but it does so with the campiest, kitschiest one-liners in the history of cinema. Some stand-out gems are: [after killing Britney Spears] “Oops, I did it again!” and [breaks down a door Shining style and pokes his head in] “You know, I can’t think of a thing to say. F*ck it!” [continues to break the door down] (From IMDB). More recently we’ve seen movies featuring Annabelle, a possessed doll that enacts various acts of violence on the family that owns it. I won’t go into too much detail as this movie is relatively new and I wouldn’t want to taint the jump scares in it. Let’s just say this movie also involves a doll that walks, talks and murders a bit on the side. The thing is that both of these murderous inanimate objects are works of fiction, born of some sick writer’s head and recorded on celluloid for posterity’s sake. Yeah, Google isn’t really cool with the fictional nature of that so they recently filed a patent for an autonomous, sentient smart doll. FINE. Plush teddy bear and rabbit.

 

Why is this creepy?

Well this might take a minute so pull up a chair….or you can stand on your head propped against the wall like you are right now….The creepiness of this patent has many, many layers. First and most obvious is the fact that you will purchase a toy for your children that is internet enabled, has integrated microphones and dual cameras. So any tech savvy pervo can gain access to your child sleeping, eating and playing, and in the terrifying scenario in which your child becomes unbelievably attached to the plush abomination inadvertently carrying it everywhere like a security blanket, aforementioned pervo will have unlimited access to yours, and your child’s lives. That’s the worst case scenario right?  Not really, there are actually websites dedicated to streaming Wi-Fi security cams, security cams, which their main function is security, are hacked and open for all to see. What makes you think that a Wi-Fi teddy bear or bunny rabbit would be safe?

It gets worse

 

According to Google’s patent, the toys will be “anthropomorphic” as in looking (and acting) human. It said in the documents that the stuffed animal with be able to move its head towards the person talking to it, show a range of emotions, including interest, boredom and surprise and even be able to make distinct facial expressions. Quick question Google: when did animatronics become anthropomorphic? Oh, it will have “human-like facial expressions” What?!!! It’s said that a “trigger” will activate them and then they will turn their head towards the individual interacting with them reacting to speech, movement and even body language. Has anyone at Google played 5 Nights at Freddie’s? This is what happens when robots are autonomous .

It gets worse and worse still

The eye is designed to hang out of the socket so it allows for a wider viewing angle.

Google is designing this so it’s appealing even for the youngest member of the family to interact with it. The youngest members of your family are being encouraged by Google to play with a device that has three different ways to record them, let that seep in. But it gets worse. You will have the option to use the bunny rabbit or teddy bear to control all of your smart devices in your home. That includes climate control, media devices, even blinds. So this stuffed animal could pull a HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey, where (in very, very simplistic terms) a deep space ship’s A.I. (HAL) kills off almost everyone on the ship, because they would jeopardize the mission that HAL, the space ship and its crew was tasked with. Imagine sitting with your cute little family watching a DVD as the temperature in your home slowly rises to get your blood flowing. All of a sudden the carbon monoxide sensors get switched off, the shades get shut tightly, and the smart-locks you installed secure the doors with a muted “ka-chunk”. Eventually your entire family falls into a deep carbon monoxide poisoned sleep as “Let it go!” from the movie Frozen plays in the background. Google-Bear stands up and cackles over your cold bodies. It could happen.

It’s the all seeing all knowing Google-Bear

 

Why is the network an ominous amorphous cloud….

Google knows all, sees all, even the darkest of our desires and perversion (It knows that you like to watch pretty girls getting hit in the face with pies you weirdo). So what makes you think that an autonomous robot plush toy won’t tap into that bottomless well of information? It’s going to be Wi-Fi enabled, and will know EVERYTHING. On the other hand, it’s a little comforting that knowledge is a tool and if you don’t know how to use a tool then it’s not really – well, utilitarian. Yeah, well let me help you feel a bit more disquieted. Google knows how to use knowledge. It uses it to make ads more effective (utilizing your browsing preferences and online behavior) to improve their products, to let their partners know how visitors are engaging their websites and to meet their legal duties, all this information is taken directly from Google’s own FAQs. Their legal duties include turning over information if it’s pertinent to a Federal investigation, without the protection of the 4th Amendment (that protects against seizures and unreasonable searches). Trust me when I say Google wants to keep a better relationship with the Government than with you. Rest (un)assured that preservation of this relationship will be just as important to Google-Bear or Google-Bunny.

Google Patents for contact lens that can scan your Iris


Google’s love for contact lenses is never ending. The search engine giant has already done considerable work on contact lenses and their use in health applications.

Now, Google has patented a new technology that transforms contact lenses into an identification device.

This new technology involves covering all parts of the iris of an eye. The contact lens surface contains one or more light sensors that are embedded on its surface and these reflect off light from the iris.

google-contact-lens-iris-fingerprint

These sensors collect an image of the iris and it is then compared with the image of same iris saved in computer’s memory. If a match between the two images is found then a door for the wearer will be unlocked or else a file containing sensitive information might become accessible.

Specifications about the technology’s applications haven’t been disclosed in the patent. Presumably, the lenses will be used for biometric authentications in numerous contexts.

Google has been testing smart contact lenses, which can be used one day by diabetics for measuring their blood sugar levels. In such type of lens, a small chip along with sensors is embedded between two coats of lens material. Tears touch the sensors through a small perforation in the material of the lens and thus, the sensors acquire blood sugar levels form the liquid. Through this lens, blood sugar level can be tested once every second.

4 Vitamins To Reduce Skin Melanin – Tips For Reducing Skin Melanin | Vitamins eStore


Skin Melanin

Melanin is the human skin pigment which is responsible for coloration of eyes and the hair. Color and melanin amount are directly proportional. Tanning is a result of increased melanin production.

Cells known as melanosomes and melanocytes contain tyrosinase when stimulated by chemicals or UV rays, stimulates production and distribution of the melanin pigment.

 

Sudden increase in melanin can cause hyper pigmentation, freckles, marks and age spots. Some vitamins can help you reduce the levels of melanin in the body, lighten the tone and prevent skin problems.

4 Vitamins To Reduce Skin Melanin

Vitamin C

Vitamin C

Popularly known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin which has anti-oxidant properties. When applied topically, vitamin C seeps deep into the skin where the melanin producing cells are located and inhibits their production.

When melanocytes are exposed to UV they produce free radicals and Vitamin C being an anti-oxidant neutralizes those harmful free radicals thereby reducing melanin formation. You can also take vitamin C along with your diet. Citrus fruits, grapefruits, berries, peppers, herbs and dark green vegetables contain Vitamin C and must be taken every day.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is also known as retinol. Retin-A one of its derivatives is widely used in the manufacture of creams and lotions. Though vitamin A does not penetrate and eliminate melanin, it stimulates growth of epidermal cells. Thus, the hyper pigmented and darkened skin is replaced by new skin cells.

Regular use of retinol creams keeps your skin glowing and lightens it because it destroys the accumulated melanin pigment. You may eat foods like green vegetables, potatoes, carrots and liver which are enriched with retinol. You may purchase Retin-A creams too.

Vitamin K

Vitamin K

Vitamin K is also known by the name-sunshine vitamin, simply because it is the only vitamin that our body can produce when the skin exposed to sunlight. Vitamin K was previously known to strengthen the bones but now it has also gained popularity as an essential skin cream component.

In some people leaky blood capillaries leads to skin coloration and regular intake of vitamin K repairs the capillaries and normalizes skin tone. Dark circles caused due to excessive melanin production are also removed when Vitamin K is used. Besides taking Vitamin D supplementation, you can opt for foods enriched with this vitamin. Foods enriched with vitamin D are fortified cereal, fortified milk products, cod liver oil, soy and soy products and fishes.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is perhaps the best vitamin for all kinds of skin problems. Though Vitamin E has no direct role in inhibiting melanin pigment production it helps the skin to fight against the melanin and recover fast. The free radicals that accelerate skin problems are destroyed when Vitamin E is taken internally, owing to the extremely strong anti-oxidant property of this vitamin.

Skin cells are also rejuvenated and replaced faster thus the damaged and pigmented cells are constantly removed to give way to new, healthy skin cells. The best way to take in Vitamin E is to opt for capsules. You must also include foods rich in Vitamin E in your daily diet. Foods such as nuts, oily fishes and spinach provide high concentrations of this vitamin E. You can also apply skin creams containing wheat germ oil or aloe vera.
