Wake up your smartphone with your voice

A new technology could allow users to activate your sleeping phones with a voice command.

The technology is in development from Nuance (best known for the Dragton NaturallySpeaking software), who want to implement voice controls into smartphone activation functions.

Nuance is working with “a number of” chip manufacturers to design a chipset that wakes smartphones up instantly upon hearing voice commands, according to MIT’s Technology Review blog.
