Gadgets Gone Evil 10
Even the nicest toys are out to get us
Can you think of anything more harmless than the beloved 'Sesame Street' character Elmo? Probably not, which is why this story about a malfunctioning Elmo doll spewing death threats is that much scarier. This "Elmo Knows Your Name" toy, which learns a child's name and other phrases, began saying "Kill James" after its batteries were replaced. James, the two-year-old owner of the doll, was understandably terrified, as was his mother. The manufacturer, Fisher-Price, replaced the doll and was investigating the incident as of this past February, but how this happened remains a mystery.
