KeyboardP developing wireless media player voice control

KeyboardP, a Windows Phone enthusiast and developer, has been busy creating an awesome system where Windows users can control a media player (Zune in this case) by voice commands. By simply saying the artist and song title into a microphone, the developed software will initialise playback through Zune. Commands are also available including pause, play, next, etc. Check out the above video to see it in action.

We don't stop here however, as KeyboardP wanted a solution to being possibly out the room where the computer and/or microphone is located. Introducing PhoneZune, a Windows Phone app that will connect to your PC over WiFi and will act as a wireless microphone. Should you be in the kitchen while your music is playing for example, this will come in handy instead of rushing to the PC to choose a track. If that wasn't enough, you can also browse YouTube for music videos. Here's a quick list of the features:

  • Launch a song with your voice using any microphone (standard, webcam, Kinect, etc.)
  • Control the media player (Zune) with voice commands (play, pause, next, etc.)
  • You can use your Windows Phone to launch the song with PhoneZune.
  • Voice control YouTube to find music videos.

No word yet on when we will be seeing the software and app being made available, and this is merely a proof of concept.

I find the app extremely fast, and awesome... I wonder how he achieved that.

One thing this reminded me of is my 3 year old WinMo phone with MS Voice Command could play artist or song by voice...and my Titan cannot.
