James Richards at VoxCommando has released a slick new video showing off some of VoxCommando’s latest features.
You already knew VoxCommando worked well for controlling your music and video experience with XBMC, MediaMonkey, iTunes, and other software. Using its extensibility features, however, James has hooked it up to a bunch of his household appliances, so that he can control the TV settings (brightness, movie mode, on/off, etc), cooling fan, whole-house audio, and more.
The video also does a great job of demonstrating how well voice works as a way to have a two-way conversation with your home automation system, by having it remind you of things verbally, asking it questions (and receiving coherent answers), and a lot more.
You still have to jump through a few hoops to make a working voice-controlled whole-house system, but things have come a long way in a few short years — and of course we’re delighted to see the Amulet Voice Remote making it easy for James to issue many of his spoken commands.
Now watch the video for yourself:
