A cute rubber dinosaur brings a new level of entertaining education to the children it plays with. No ordinary childhood novelty, CogniToys are internet connected smart toys driven by IBM’s Watson Supercomputer.

On purchasing the toy, parents can input details such as child’s age, favourite colour and food. The Watson computer can then make an evaluation of the child’s skill level, helping it to interact with them on the appropriate level. Each dinosaur can carry on conversations with their child playmate using speech recognition techniques and is even capable of developing a personality according to the listed likes and dislikes of its owner. Cognitoys1
