As far as I'm concerned, the '80s toy Teddy Ruxpin was already a bit of a creepster. A strange combo man/bear with perpetually outstretched arms, Ruxpin was at turns needy and difficult, with the vocal intonations of a serial killer.
Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so. Portland, Oregon, artist Sean Hathaway hacked into the Teddy Ruxpin computer system and created deviously modified bears. Hathaway replaced the Ruxpin vocal box with an array of creepy alternatives, all having mental breakdowns. The effect is chilling and confirms our deepest fears about Ruxpin. He's a maniac.
