Voice Recognition Grocery List Organizer

voice-grocery-listSick and tired of going to the grocery store and return only to find out from the missus that you have forgotten to purchase a couple of essential items, getting a mouthful in the process? Well, Hammacher has something to help all you beleaguered guys out there who have yet to come up with a grocery list all their lives – the Voice Recognition Grocery List Organizer.

This device stores and prints grocery lists generated from the items you speak into its microphone. Using an integrated voice recognition system, the shopping list manager matches a spoken item with one of the 2,500 food, beverage, household, beauty, and office products in its database. Each spoken product appears on the LCD and you can add it to the list and print an alphabetized record with the touch of a button. The device recognizes words as specific as swordfish, emery boards, and lawn bags, and identifies errands, such as going to the bank, library, or veterinarian. You can create and manage two different lists simultaneously, add products to the database (up to a maximum of 5,000 items), and customize the sequence in which the products print to correspond with the layout of your grocery store. Attaches magnetically to a refrigerator or mounts to a wall with the included kit. Includes one roll of paper.

Powered by a quartet of AA batteries, the Voice Recognition Grocery List Organizer will set you back by $99.95. We suppose you’ll be able to pay it off in due time after saving on all the gas of making return trips to pick up something you’ve forgotten.
