The voice synthesizers are those programs as Loquendo, which provide of human voice to the machine. Although the majority of them have a voice very robotic, without intonation and feelings, but we can understand it. Here you see roughly how is imitated the human voice in a computer and because is so difficult achieve a voice equal to the human one. Enter into "How works the voice synthesizers?"

Swarm robots, Kilobot
The previous post was about robots with body inspired by animals, so that in this I'm going to talk about robots with intelligence inspired in the nature. This are a lot of more interesting, because its programming, unlike to the robots of the prior post, is more related with the artificial intelligence than with the physics.

Helmet to rea the mind
In the last years has been developed several helmets that allow read the brain, and the software responsible of make a determinate action depending on the thoughts of the user.

Kinect
Microsoft wants that we can play with the Xbox 360 moving us in front of the screen. For that have spend hundreds of millions of dollars in develop a device to realize the recognition and the tracking, not only of a complete person but several ones, including also 3D information, its name is Kinect. In this post you will discover how works the hardware and the artificial intelligence algorithms that uses. Learn more about "Kinect: How works its 3D body tracking"

Kempelen machine reconstruction
Over two hundred years ago, in 1779, Christian Kartzenstein did 5 whistles that made blew the vowels artificially. Few years after, in 1791, Wolfgang von Kemplelen presented his "Acoustic-Mechanical Speech Machine" that we could consider the first voice synthesizer because it could produce isolated sounds and some sound combinations.
