Technology can make us feel so detached from human interaction. Talking on cell phones, texting, instant messaging… none of it compares to a face to face interaction. Maybe that was the idea behind the Elfoid Phone, but the result doesn’t seem any more personal—it’s just creepy. Seriously, what’s up with those little chicken wing arms? Currently Elfoid doesn’t move, but future versions will match face and head movements of the speaker in real-time, upping the creepy factor quite a bit. This strange Japanese device is expected to launch in about 5 years with more features like an accelerometer and voice recognition. The only question is how the heck do you play Angry Birds on a doll?
