Voice communication concerning a local entity

Voice communication concerning a local entity

This has to be one of the strangest patent illustrations I’ve ever seen. Is this the future of customer support? “I am a plant. How can I help you?”

The patent explains:

The voice services thus acts as a voice dialog proxy for the plant and gives the impression to the person… that they are conversing with the plant.

And what a stimulating conversation that will be! “How are the seedlings doing? Your leaves are looking lovely—photosynthesis sure has been kind!”

If you’ve ever wanted “voice interaction with a local dumb device” might I suggest going to your local pub?
