Google Voice search for Chrome hit the web just the other week, and the company asked interactive agency Breakfast to come up with something cool to showcase the feature. Well, Breakfast came through swinging with The Verbalizer, an open source hardware gizmo that lets devs (novice and otherwise) play around with the tool.
Touching the board, which looks like a microphone, will set off Voice Search from 10 meters away, prompting users to “speak now” to search. You can use it as such, or, if you know anything about wires and whatnot, modify it however you choose. See the video above for examples of what the board can become.
Breakfast is also responsible for Instaprint, a lunchbox-sized device that turns photos modified with the iPhone app Instagram into physical prints, as well as Precious the Tweeting Bike. The company will be giving away a small number of Verbalizer kits for free, via a drawing.
What would you create if you could get your hands on this gadget?
