Beware the infrared tech-hacker owls

Yes, it’s just as weird (and cool) as it sounds. Two Italian toy designers have developed a prototype of Bubo…

“…a toy owl that can cast spells and take control over innocent devices or other toys in its surroundings.”

Apparently, when two of them are brought together, they battle for supremacy using the infrared control ‘spells’ they have learned. If nothing else, this may teach people not to leave household devices on standby, lest the kids have a Bubo battle-party and send the neighbourhood haywire!
