  • Tell VOCO What You Want To Listen To

    Wi-Fi music system uses voice activated Android app to control your music.

    Today I received a press release for VOCO, an IP music system operated by voice control.

    I was skeptical at first. OK, I’m still skeptical because I haven’t actually seen the system yet, but the more I think about it the more I like the idea.

    Of course it’s not as simple as that. The voice control comes via an app on your Android smartphone or tablet (iPad/.iPhone app coming later), so you still have to pull out your device, open the app, and then tell it what to do. You probably have to speak slowly too, but I really don’t know yet.

  • German iPod-Based VooMote Controller Now Available
