The Ubi is basically a ubiquitous computing device that in theory could connect anyone anywhere in the home or office to the internet via voice control. There are so many uses for a device like this, yet the Ubi is not that expensive and it is almost fully funded on Kickstarter too.
These are the features for the interesting little Ubi wi-fi device;
Voice-enabled Internet search
Indicator light (light changing based on events, e.g. weather, stock, email)
Home speaker system with sound piping
Virtual assistant (audio calendar, feed reader, podcast etc)
Noise pollution monitor
Controlling the climate of your home perfectly (through web enabled thermostats like Nest)
The Ubi is currently on Kickstarter where for just £121 in the UK and $189 in the US one of the first models could be yours.
