Once in a while a technology comes along that I just have to have. And Pink Tentacle covered just the thing recently. It’s a robotic Teddy Bear that’s also a GPS and breathalyzer test. It rides shotgun, gesticulating as it gives directions. “Turn right,” it says, pointing. If you pat its head, it will tell you about nearby landmarks. But the part I like best is this: If you get behind the wheel after imbibing, he will shriek, “You haven’t been drinking have you?”

Unfortunately, this little guy is only a prototype. So I can’t get my husband one for Father’s Day. Too bad. That would be so much fun to watch.
