A company called Moshi, which specializes in voice-controlled consumer electronics, has launched a new Digital Clock Radio that lets users set alarms, listen to the radio, and more, through the use of simple voice commands.
Users simply say "Hello Moshi" to wake up the device, from which there's an array of commands that can set up alarm time and buzzer sound to turning on the built-in radio.
And when the alarm goes off, simply tell the clock to snooze and it will. If there's ever a device that would actually benefit from a voice-controlled operation, it's the alarm clock. Of course, maybe that makes it a bit too easy to just ignore the alarm and tell it to be quiet.
As the CEO of Moshi's parent company Michael Nostrant puts it, "There is no easier way to wake up or play music other than by saying 'Hello Moshi' and having the device submit to your command."
Let's just get voice-activated Roombas and dishwashers and this will be one awesome country.
