This is a converted old video intercom, with modern search functions added!
It connects to a PC or laptop and lifting the phone handset automatically launches Chrome on the computer and activates Google Voice Search. Speak your search into the handset microphone and the results appear on screen, with audio feedback through the handset's speaker.
I use voice search on my phone a lot and this gives me the same capability on my workshop PC, but using adapted old technology to make it fun!
The first two red buttons are programmable, and are currently set up to Skype call my wife and shut down the PC, respectively. The other red buttons control the inbuilt digital photo frame, which displays a slideshow of appropriate images - one to power it on/off and the other to manually advance the image.
