  • BACKGROUND
  • The present invention relates to an entertainment or educational device, and particularly to a combination of realistic art and electronic video. The invention comprises a toy or toy vehicle with an electronic device capable of playing audio-visual images to simulate a face, with the electronic device integrated into the toy or toy vehicle. The electronic device comprises an LCD screen or is connected to an LCD screen, wherein the LCD screen is disposed in the head of a toy, with or without a body, or in a location of a toy vehicle, normally the front, so as to simulate the appearance that the toy or toy vehicle is alive. Images of live, recorded or pre-recorded talking faces would play on the LCD screen. The head, and/or body, of the toy can be that of a person, animal, cartoon character, insect, dinosaur, robot, plant, or thing with living characteristics. The toy vehicle can be a plane, train, automobile, flying saucer, bicycle, tricycle, wagon, bus, truck, etc.
  • One embodiment is a simulated head or a simulated toy vehicle on a stand. The simulated head or simulated toy vehicle acts as a housing for the electronic device with the LCD screen. The simulated head or simulated toy vehicle would have an indentation for the LCD screen to serve as a face, and the LCD screen would display images of a face of a person, animal, cartoon character, insect, dinosaur, plant, or any other living thing. The images of a face are controlled by software for storing, recording, and playing audio-visual images of live, recorded or pre-recorded faces. The electronic device can be a small portable electronic device detachably attached or permanently attached to the simulated head or simulated toy vehicle. A second embodiment would be a computer monitor resembling a head of a living thing with fasteners for attaching various physical accessories of a head of a living thing, such as a wig, hat, goatee, horns, fins, petals, jewelry, etc, or a computer monitor resembling a vehicle with fasteners for attaching physical accessories of a vehicle, such as decals, sirens, flashing lights, antennas, etc. A third embodiment would be a doll, including a stuffed animal, with an LCD screen permanently attached or detachably attached to a head of a doll, or a toy vehicle with an LCD screen permanently attached or detachably attached to the front of the toy vehicle.
  • Small portable electronic devices that play video and audio are known. These include digital picture frames, mp3 players, clocks, cell phones, etc. There exist various electronic devices that attempt to personalize the electronic device. For example, US Publication No. US 2008/0167099 A1 in the name of Liu is a mobile device having a skin with an enameled metal structure that creates a China-chic beauty and feel. Also, U.S. Publication No. 2009/0322982 A 1 by Finnegan transforms an LCD display into a digital picture frame in which an LCD display screen having various stored images is encased in a plastic or wooden frame made to resemble a printed picture frame. Thus, whether or not small portable devices contain stored or internet-based content, attempts have been made to personalize these devices.
  • Also known are artificial talking subjects, including dolls and robots, computer generated images of people or animals, cartoons, etc. However, these talking subjects are limited to the physical dimensions with which they were constructed, or are confined to a display screen. None of these artificial talking subjects incorporate both the physical dimensions of a talking subject with a display screen. In particular, none of these incorporate a display screen with an audio-visual playback of a face onto the head of the toy or the front of a toy vehicle so as to create the appearance that the toy or toy vehicle is alive.
  • Also, known are video dolls with a video camera including a display screen, or a video camera in the shape of a doll. Included in these are nanny cams comprised of a hidden video camera in stuffed animals. Also included are video cameras in the shape of dolls having LCD display screens. For example, US 2009/0197504 A1 filed by Hsu teaches a doll with an LCD screen in the body of the doll while a Barbie doll exists with an LCD screen in the back of the Barbie doll. See http://www.barbie.com/videogirl/ (attached). However, these inventions are limited in that the doll's faces do not change. This is because the images that appear on the LCD screen were not intended to depict talking faces in such a manner that it would appear that the talking face is that of the doll or mechanical/electrical device or model thereof.
  • Also known are static train toy sets. Toy trains currently are mechanical and/or electrical devices which serve as static working models of real trains with no face or personality. Some toy trains have an audio system but not an LCD face.
  • Thus, the personality of the doll or toy vehicle does not change, nor can a user pretend that they are holding a doll or toy vehicle of the person or personality appearing on the LCD screen. With the present invention, a child left alone at home can pretend that her mother is with her by playing a live, or recorded audio-video image of her mother's face on the face of her doll or toy vehicle.
  • Finally, a computerized system for designing a pattern to be applied to a doll or toy is known. See US 2006/0286512 A1 to Cogliano. Here, while the clothing patterns may change, the personality of the doll remains the same because the face or voice does not change. Having the LCD screen built into the face of the doll, as well as having an array of pre-recorded or live faces to choose from, including cartoon characters, provides a lot more versatility with a doll because the doll can take on any personality that appears on the screen.
  • Thus, the objective of the present invention is to merge an electronic audio-video playback device, such as a small portable electronic device, wherein an LCD display is integrated within a head of a toy, with or without a body, or in a location of a toy vehicle, such as the front, in order to more personalize electronic devices, as well as to add more versatility and fun to toys and toy vehicles. The combination thereof of an integrated electronic video-audio face in a toy or toy vehicle offers a myriad of opportunities for entertainment or education in a far more realistic and engrossing manner than utilization of a doll or an LCD screen individually.
  • While the invention contemplates a toy with a head or a toy vehicle, it is conceivable that the toy can be a clock, washing machine, laundry machine, agricultural machine, and other inanimate objects. The new invention will have numerous advantageous uses whether as a clock, toy, information device, comedy device, personal toy, educational device, entertainment device or celebrity simulation device, including interactive capability.
