"for ten bucks, you can get an amazing little artificial intelligence,
about as smart as an insect -- but an insect which specializes in
guessing what object you are thinking of. And in that part of the
brain, it's smarter than you are"

But who can throw who into a wall or a bucket of water if it
gets too clever ? ;-)))

Interesting little gadget though. What a world we live in

My niece has one... it's not all that smart. It failed to get "socks",
and "tennis ball". On the other hand, it did guess a few things right.
Still a clever toy, but not all that clever.

I see they're claiming it's based on a "neural net" and are even
advertising number of synapses.  I don't think so.  That "learning
20 questions" game has been around since before "neural Networks"
was a buzward, and even since before microcomputers It's
interesting to observe that you can fit it along with a sizable
database of questions/answers in such a tiny package, but it's
far from state-of-the-art AI...

The toy is only a spin-off of the original which might be top notch (or
at least better) You can play with that on http://www.20q.net/
It is even more fun because at the end it evaluates your answers and
tells you what answers it thinks you should have given
