One Voice Technologies have a new wireless microphone solution for their Media Center Communicator software. The LTB Q-Bean Wireless 2.0 Audio link systems streams uncompressed audio through a link that allows duplex voice and data control.
One of the problems I have always had with Media Center Communicator is how to setup the Microphone, at the moment I have one on the desk but a wireless solution would be much better, plus you can use the Q-Bean with Skpye (all still in Media Center) so for me it’s an ideal solution. I can sit on the sofa use my voice to navigate Media Center and chat via Skype all without any remote or keyboard.
