MAKO Obeys Voice Commands Like 'Read' or 'Write'

— October 18, 2013 — Tech
Seems like using a keyboard or mouse on your computer is outdated; with MAKO, a new artificial intelligence software, you don’t need anything but your voice to get tasks done. You can even create a PowerPoint presentation without once touching the keyboard or mouse.

You voice is MAKO’s command. It understands and obeys voice commands like “Open Facebook,” “What’s the weather like?” or “Show me flights from LA to Washington.” Not only does the program perform given tasks, but it also speaks back to you in an American female or British male voice. Think Siri, but on your computer with a shorter response time.

This software is incredibly smart; using biometrics, it will recognize your voice, age and even phone number after being introduced to you once. MAKO can identify up to 10 people who are talking to it at the same time. And with its memorization system in place, it gets more and more intelligent every time it reads something.

MAKO’s ability to type or read text will change the way you do everyday assignments. Flaunting an extensive list of special features, MAKO is suited to be a man’s – and especially a student’s – best friend. 

MAKO is currently raising funds on Kickstarter. The creator firmly believes that this breakthrough software will revolutionize the way humans interact with technology.
