Voice-Activated Remote Control

"At least two companies, the OneVideo Technology Corp. and Agile TV, are developing speech-recognition products (OneListener and Promptu, respectively) that will let viewers change channels with voice prompts like "search" and "find." Though a voice-activated channel changer is not a new idea, the current incarnation has been prompted as much by advertising as by convenience. The device would make it easier for consumers to order a movie, a pizza or a car dealer's brochure, eliminating the need to dial toll-free numbers or to scroll through menus on the television."
