Here's a WiFi-enabled Russian Doll that's designed to replace your Mother

When doom-mongers portend that technology is destroying human relationships, plenty of 'em will use this as exhibit one. 

Mother is the brainchild of Rafi Haladjian, the mind behind the Nabaztag, and is a device designed to monitor the objects, creatures and people in your home. 

The white plastic Russian Doll connects to a series of sensors, called cookies, that measure motion and temperature, and will alert you when it notices a change. 

For instance, if you strapped a cookie to the door where your meds are kept, but one day forgot to open it when you were due, the device would nag you until you remembered -- just like your own mother.
