Zumba phone promises secure, accurate voice control

Share

Designed on an industrial estate in Hereford, the Zumba is the world’s first fully hands-free mobile phone. It comes in two sections – an earpiece and a body. The body is about the size of a credit card and looks a bit like an MP3 player. The earpiece is more like a hearing aid.

Voice recognition tech navigates you through the menus and your contacts are securely stored on a website called “Zumba Lumba”(!). The manufacturers claim that if lost, the phone is useless to anyone but you. It’ll be in shops before the end of the year, and there’s no price tag yet.

  • I feel like I’m often looking for interesting things to read about a variety of subjects, but I manage to include your blog among my reads every day because you have interesting entries that I look forward to. Here’s hoping there’s a lot more great material coming!

  • Definitely want one of these…
    True Handsfree, secure. Proto looks light and easy to carry.

    Way to go for true innovation. Really amazing.
