Next Thing has unveiled a new hands-free car kit which has been equipped with artificial intelligence to help you control your mobile devices, music, maps and messaging.
Watch the video below to learn more about the unique features of the Dashbot which is capable of adding artificial intelligence to any car say its developers for just $58.
Dashbot connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and intelligently controls your music, maps, and messages with just your voice. Say “Dashbot, play James Brown” or “Dashbot, navigate home,” and Dashbot’s AI will do the rest, playing sound through your car’s stereo.
Dashbot is designed to be 100% voice controlled so you can keep your hands on the wheel. Dashbot announces turn-by-turn directions, reads your texts aloud, and tells you who is calling. Got a question? Kick off any request by saying “Dashbot,” its onboard AI adapts to your voice and surroundings to hear you clearly.
Dashbot uses a far-field beamforming microphone array and state-of-the-art digital signal processing. That’s the fancy way of saying Dashbot hears you no matter how bumpy the road or how loud the music. No yelling necessary.
Using the best of today’s speech-to-text engines, you can send text messages confidently. No need to verify your message on a screen. Dashbot reads them back to you so you can confirm without looking at your phone.
