If you thought that buying the new iPhone 3GS was the only way to get voice control on an iPod, you’re wrong. Thanks to this new accessory, you’ll be able to add voice command to other iPod models too.
Aibelive’s AITALK controller snaps onto the bottom of iPods, and provides complete voice control, letting you search for song, artist or album with the dulcet tones of your voicebox.
Aibelive claims their technology is 90% accurate (does this it’ll play the wrong song 10% of the time?) Their voice recognition system is speaker-independent, and can understand 17 different languages. The photo below shows all of the available commands you can kick off with the press of AITALK’s voice control button.
I’m not quite sure what’s up with that “reference song list,” but I can say with confidence that I have 0.0% of these tracks on my iPod.
There’s no word on a release date yet, but word on the street is that the AITALK will retail come first to North America, and retail for appx. $85 (USD).
