Google has recently dropped it’s new desktop voice search, and the kids over at breakfast have made a device that makes the search a little more rad.
The Verbalizer, which looks like a microphone icon you would see on a computer, connects to your computer via Bluetooth. When activated, it will launch Google with voice search ready to go. An audio signal then tells you when to speak into the Verbalizer—which works with Arduino. By leaving some I/O ports open, this device lets you get your fun on.
Did you just say “What kind of fun?!” Maybe a microphone drops down from the ceiling and you hear Michael Buffer announce “Let’s get ready to rumble!”, or maybe you are blind and the device tells you where everything is directly in front of you, or maybe you hook it up to a Rube Goldberg machine that starts breakfast for you when you search the daily news in the morning, or… or…. OR!!!
To see what the kids over at breakfast have done with the Verbalizer check out the video below, or see their other creations over on their website.
