seems impressive, will have to wait and see real world results.
Siri / Svoice are quite underwhelming.

Sounds like a perfect merger with Majel.
I just wanted to also make mention that he is using a sprint Nexus, which is just a vanilla SGS1. It can run on my phone!!! yaaay!! lol. :)
If they can really make it work like that, that would be a massive improvement over ALL tech we currently use, Siri and Android commands. Now if we could just get rid of the robo-voice.

WTF?! I still have my SGS1 too! Man that was awesome it's literally a digital assistant! I hope they won't charge too much for it though. I'll pay a maximum of $6 to get that on my droid :)
*Nah I'll probably get it even if it costs much more, it just looks like so much fun :)

You guys think this is worth pledging money to?

Definitely don't want the British Silvia. Anyone else notice Mr. SuperShakyHands?

"Anyone else notice Mr. SuperShakyHands?"
Yes, maybe some health problems. There is nothing to laugh about or escalate that.

Not always a good thing to make fun of ailments, I tend to have shaky hands and that was from working with heavy tools during my time in construction business, so it's quite hard to use the touch feature on track pads as my fingers tend to hit the pad mistakenly. Not sure it will ever go away as it's the nerves that are damaged slightly. It's an annoyance at times when I have to use my gf laptop but I can deal with it.
Nice program these guys are working on, lets hope it can get smarter and doesn't consume mass amounts of RAM. Now let's do away with that robotic voice, that just makes you feel all sorts of weird having a conversation with that monotonic sounding assistant.
