Voice-controlled mobile phone as Tipping Point of the Internet mountain view/Berlin the voice control of the iPhone with Google Mobile app\”is Web 2.0 pioneer Tim O’Reilly as Tipping Point\”: the term referred to that moment in which something unique is the normal condition and a qualitative point marked. It is time, as first-class equipment to see phones to access the Internet, and to dedicate not only as a possibility, content and applications, which were originally conceived with a keyboard and a screen read\”O’Reilly in his blog writes radar.oreilly.com. With the voice control function will paved a new way for computer services. Apple wowed us with the iPhone’s touch screen, but the inclusion of the accelerometer was almost as important; and now Google has shown us how this can be used as a main component of a user application. Put the phone to your ear and the application begins to overhear; through a rather natural gesture as triggered by an artificial tap or click. \”Yes, the accelerometer was already in games such as tilt or the iPint used, but Google has driven the whole further integrating the phone main sensor: the microphone\”, so O’Reilly. In his view, the future of mobile phones lies here: a user interface to develop that throws all previous generations overboard.
Point and click was a breakthrough for computers, but a dead end for the design of user interfaces. Meanwhile, the iPhone and similar Smartphones have a wide range of sensors: microphone, camera, touchscreen, accelerometer, and site location. New applications and combinations will lead to more surprises. Future devices will have an ever greater number of senses to make sure what we want. Could a phone detect the movement, are we, if we hold up a camera in front of us, so that we can set the settings? Could we with the Talk phone to change camera settings? Could a phone automatically detect the movement of cars and switch to language choice? \”And then there are of course all other interactions with other devices that are possible, if we regard the telephone as part of tax similar to the Wii console from Nintendo,\” O’Reilly explained.
