Everyday it seems big brands like Apple and Microsoft are inventing new technologies to change the way we work, socialise and live.Today, Google transformed a town house in Euston into a 'house for the future' to show off their new voice search technology. The big idea in technology is to move away from the mouse and keyboard and towards a more intuitive interaction.
New technology will now allow users to verbally ask questions like; "Do I need an umbrella today?" in everyday English. The search engine will instantly tap into your location and the weather forecast and give you a straight yes or no answer with a synopsis of the local London weather.
The idea is for Google to become a virtual PA, able to remind you about meetings and even give you advanced warning if the traffic is likely to be bad.
