Talking to (and Like) the Blender

Being a complete disaster in the kitchen, it's a real pleasure to me to read that other girls have thought about "interesting" ways to use their household appliances.
Blendie, is a voice controlled 1950's Osterizer blender which has been altered, by design engineer Kelly Dobson, with custom made hardware and software for sound analysis and motor control.
If you manage to make your voice sufficiently blender-like, Blendie will begin to pitch-track and power-match your voice with its own motor body. Low pitch blender-like sounds will induce Blendie to spin slowly, while higher pitches speed it up.
By speaking the language of the machine, you understand and connect with it better. This may also bring about personal revelations in yourself, because in sounding with the blender one is likely to perform gesture and sound expressions not previously accessed which may open up unfound emotions or thoughts or feelings.

It is slow to download, but don't miss the video.
