iLane Helps E-Mail-Obsessed Individuals Multitask

iLane, the small black box introduced by Waterloo, Ontario-based Intelligent Mechatronic Systems Inc., is designed for people who can’t live without their e-mails and spend most of their lives in all kinds of transition.

Gadgets reading text aloud is not something new, but it sure has been attracting a lot of attention recently. We have the Amazon Kindle 2, which reads your books, and the latest iPod shuffle, which speaks your song’s titles aloud. Now iLane, working only with Blackberry at the moment, gives you an idea of what’s going on in your inbox through a wireless Bluetooth earphone.

The good thing about iLane is it will not convert your spoken message into garbled text after you tell it to reply; instead, your voice will be sent just as you’ve recorded it via an MP3 attachment.
