Prior Art <link>.
A mobile phone the size and shape of a full size adult macaw, with realistic plumage, animatronic mobility, and a repertoire of sounds.
The eyes contain cameras and the unit runs facial recognition software, allowing it to recognise and speak to "friends". It has a repertoire
of amusing phrases and behaviors, and is gyro and servo stabilised to maintain its balance.
It has a high quality speakerphone, the speaker being in the wing closest to the owner's ear.
Dialling is by voice command, or by a discreet wristwatch-style terminal.
The optional eyepatch is in fact a VR/ER monocular.
