Mornings Made Easy: Coffee Maker with Voice Recognition

Mornings Made Easy: Coffee Maker with Voice Recognition

When you first wake up in the morning, you're not primed to work with difficult gadgets. Even setting the coffee maker is a chore before you get your contacts in and wipe the morning from your eyes, right? Maybe not. But a talking coffee maker sure is cool.

The Speak n' Brew from Primula is the world's first talking—and listening—coffee maker.

If I had one, I'd name it Kathy and here's how my mornings would go: Press the 'talk' button to let Kathy know I want to chit chat. She'll then ask me, out loud, what time I want my coffee ready. Then I tell her (in out-loud plain English) my answer. She'll confirm my directions and disply my coffee time on her built-in LCD display. It's like having a little coffee robot that lives in your kitchen.

The Speak n' Brew brews 10 cups of coffee and includes features like a 2-hour auto shut off and a manual one-touch brew start—in case you don't want to talk to your appliances.

It's $79.99 from Primula Products.
