Webcam dolls look like they're for kids

We're not impressed.

USB Geek

As much as we liked the " Happy Kid " and " Bubble Head " Webcams, this one has gone too far. The oddly named "GeekPark" USB Webcam (a play on South Park?) is basically the Cabbage Patch equivalent of computer peripherals. The pint-sized dolls have adjustable heads, legs and arms, as well as a camera lense embedded in their torsos.

Perhaps the strangest thing of all is their individual names--"Ms. B," "Mr. G," et al--which are remind us of "Mr. Pink" and "Mr. Brown" from Reservoir Dogs. Which is doubly disturbing, given that these cam-toys look like innocent little Playmobil figures. Something tells us we're giving this way too much thought.
