Main Document

"Ubi is a voice-activated computer that plugs directly into a power outlet and connects to the Internet through wifi."

As seen on Tuesday 16th edition of Lang and O'Leary Exchange, the Ubi is an always-on voice-activated computer ready to help. Just plug it in, talk to it and it'll help you connect with the world.

Ubi, (pronounced "Oobie"), will be a huge benefit to the elderly and people with disabilities including those with visual, hearing, or mobility impairments.

Ubi is short for ubiquitous computer - it is always on, always listening, always ready to help. It can scribe, listen, analyze. Ubi will either talk back to you with the information you seek or indicate information through multi-color lights.

Ubi is a voice-activated computer that plugs directly into a power outlet and connects to the Internet through wifi.

You simply talk to the Ubi and it talks back to you with the information you requested.

Saying "Ubi" wakes up the device for receiving verbal commands. You can then instruct Ubi to do your bidding.

If you've used Apple's Siri on your iPhone, or seen the ads for Siri voice activated search on TV, this product operates in a similar fashion.

The Ubi runs on the Android platform with a powerful processor for voice recognition and also has the ability to connect to other devices. You can plug in speakers, USB drives, or connect through Bluetooth directly to your iPhone or Android device.
