Make me another margarita!
This might be something that my husband is used to hearing me snap out from across the house. However, soon (hopefully) I may be able to bark out my commands even when he’s hiding out in the tool shed.
The kids at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have just invented Blendie 2000, a voice-controlled blender. So it seems they are using their super-brain powers to master the art of blending? I guess it’s a lot easier than those pesky diseases.
Unfortunately, the Sci-Fi Tech guys say the device doesn’t just respond to commands; it’s all about the pitch. Sounds like the perfect Christmas gift for me.
Before you ask, there are no plans to actually mass-produce this appliance right now. However, there’s this pretty cool, sort of creepy demo up on YouTube.
