alttext

Ubi, the ubiquitous computer, is a hands-free, voice-activated computer that is always on, allowing users to stay connected while engaging in everyday activities. Ubi plugs into a wall socket, can be placed in various rooms around your house, and accesses the Internet through a wifi connection. Saying “Ubi” wakes up the Ubi for receiving verbal commands. Ubi can be used to make a phone call, send an email, search the Internet, or monitor rooms in your home. Ubi can relay information through speech output (it talks to you) or it can indicate information through multi-color lights. It’s internal sensors can detect sound, temperature, light, pressure, and humidity.
