Meet Dash. A cute little kid-friendly robot with a giant eyeball as her main feature. Dash connects to a variety of apps via Bluetooth to let kids play, sing, dance, and learn to code with their new robot friend. Now, you just have to get used to a giant eyeball roaming your home.

What could happen if something goes wrong?

The app for the toy accesses the microphone on your phone or tablet, so if hacked, as with any app that accesses the microphone on your phone or tablet, there’s the potential someone could listen in. We have no reason to believe that this app is any more susceptible to hacking than any other app.
