Pic below is the internals of one of the earliest devices of its kind.

Looking like something straight out of a 1984 WB horror flick, this thing became a rage (and became notorious for being banned by some parts of the US govt). What is it?

Cracked by everyone!

Answer:

The “Furby” toy. Shady thing could listen to humans and pretended to “learn” English. They got banned because they contained mics that the spooks at NSA thought could be used to spy (or somesuch thing). Always reminded me of those little critters from Gremlins!. Much hate.

    has it something to do with the 7th generation video gaming.
    The seventh generation of video game incorporates graphical representations of complex high resolution, the use of recognizable characters and a thunderous sound section. In addition, it gives the player a remarkable degree of freedom in selecting or manipulating the various elements involved in the game.

    Furby, banned due to possible repeating behaviour of sensitive words.
