I’m more or less convinced my youngest son (seen above) is the real world incarnation of Stewie, from Family Guy. He’s surprisingly smart, and has an expression most of the time that belies some sort of secret attempt to take over the world.

This command device activates GIANT TORAYAN. Developed by a research lab at the Nagoya Institute of Technology, it uses the most advanced voice recognition technology to differentiate the voices of adults and children. The voice of Yanobe’s child was used as the recognition standard for the child’s voice.
