Meet AI-Powered, Voice-Interactive Barbie (Video)

 

She's 58-years-old, and she's already been a police officer, an astronaut, and the President of the United States, too.

But now, Barbie's a voice-interactive hologram. So that's fun.

From the looks of it, her mannerisms seem oddly modeled off of the sisters in "Frozen." She's also imprisoned in a box, so you just sort of look at her. She can change nationality with the snap of her fingers, though. So that's cool.

Still, all that voice interaction may come with some privacy concerns, however. But relax: Wired reports that the system uses 256-bit encryption and follows FTA guidelines.

So you can get back to talking to her as she prances around ... inside a box.

Maybe that's why Ken's nowhere to be found.
