You speak and 'ShutterVoice' listens

Shuttervoice is a Windows-only application that allows you to completely control Canon's EOS remote operating utility, strictly through voice command.

"Computer..." Scott Forman

Scott Forman may or may not be a Star Trek fan, but when I watch his ShutterVoice demo in action, all I can think of is Jean Luc Picard on the Enterprise, in his quarters, editing photos, with some Earl Grey and Macbeth at his side. Editing photos?!

ShutterVoice, created by Mr. Forman, is a Windows-only application that allows you to completely control Canon's EOS utility--which enables you to remotely operate your camera through the computer, strictly through voice command. What made me giddy as a fanboy was that you seemingly have to say "computer" before each command. Uber-geeky, I know.

The software will be available in December 2008 for $30. Check out the movie below for a full demo.
