BBC News says Trekkie communicator ready to go
The Vocera communications system channels voice calls via a wi-fi network to recognise who someone is trying to reach and then to connect them.
Servers do the job of decoding speech to recognise names, find out if the person is available and then a portion of the wireless network is reserved so the people can speak to each other.
I have several comments on this story:
- It should be entitled Trekker Communicator Ready to Go. Yes, I am a huge Star Trek geek.
