Creepy GPS and Breathalyzer Teddy Bear

robot_teddy.jpgHere's a weird little gadget being developed in (where else?) Japan - a teddy bear that acts as a GPS and breathalyzer. Apparently it uses some Tron-like robot technology from the future to be able to tell you about nearby landmarks as you drive, and contains a sensor in its neck that allows it to "smell" if you've been drinking and yell at you.

Our question is - if it thinks you're going to drink and drive, does it auto-dial 911 or does it continue to glibly tell you about nearby Chuck E Cheese restaurants?

(PS - did you know Chuck E Cheese was started by the guy who invented Pong? Neither did we until yesterday!)
