Hammacher Schlemmer offers first voice-activated coffee maker
Famous gadget distributor Hammacher Schlemmer is offering something for the “coffee achievers” (or baby boomers?) with the world’s first voice-automated coffee maker.
This is the first voice-interactive coffee maker that asks, “Would you like to set the clock or set the coffee brewing time?” and operates in response to your verbal commands. Simply saying, “Set the coffee brewing time,” or “Set the clock,” will prompt the machine to reply, “Please say the time, including AM or PM.” It uses an advanced voice recognition system to identify any time of day you speak, eliminating the hassle of fussing with buttons.
That’s right, no more fooling around with buttons or other confusing controls. The coffee maker is capable of 10 cups a time, and you can remove the carafe during a brewing to pour yourself that cup of joe. You can pick this one up for $99.95.
