The iPhone and Android may be the hot ticket smartphones, but can they creep you out like the Elfoid? No—when it comes to scaring the bejeezus out of you, the Elfoid from Japan is in a class of its own.
Features include: a creepy form factor based on the Telenoid robot, creepy control buttons under realistic-feeling skin, a creepy camera that captures your emotions, and creepy wriggling motions that make you feel like you are actually holding a tiny humanoid and talking into its belly.
The idea is to make phone conversations feel more intimate and personal—kind of like talking to your mom while holding an embryo, apparently. Check out the video of the Elfoid after the break.
