Fracka Friskey Doreian: INVENTOR [+2]

Abstract

This invention involves a design incorporating a voice recognition capability into an alarm clock, with the intention of controlling the snooze function. The invention will allow the sleeper to set the alarm clock into a snooze loop without leaving the bed, and because numeric voice recognition is reliable, the user will also be able to set the length of the snooze period. The technology could also be used for pager and wristwatch alarms that normally do not have a snooze function, or even for the control of time setting features on VCR and TV clocks.
