Magic Block

We’re not really sure how this thing works, but apparently this IBM produced voice recorder – called the Magic Block (Yanko has ‘Book’ and ‘Block’) – let’s you search recordings by keyword utizliing voice recognition technology.  Searches can also be performed by looking for a particular voice which must be previously associated at the time of recording, and by time stamp.  Included in the package is a fingerprint reader for added security, and the hinge like design acts a sort of ‘hold’.
