Amulet Voice Activated Remote Control Gets Reviewed

MissingRemote has a review of the new “Voice Activated” remote control from Amulet.  Here’s what they have to say:

"Voice activated." In the past just the words alone have made many cringe as implementations have been fairly weak and suffered from a myriad of different variables in the environment which made performance lackluster. Amulet Devices looks to change that with their own Remote Control and Media Center (MC) software implementation by embedding a microphone inside the remote as well as designing their own interface for controlling it. The potential for voice has always been there, and it looks like Amulet may be the first to get it right.

I LOVE my Ford Sync voice activated features, but I’m not sure I want or need it in the living room for my TV – although I could be convinced if it’s super easy to use.  What do you guys think?
