This demo demonstrates a small and portable system embedding microphone array processing and robust speech recognition for distant-speech interaction to control a floor lamp. The system is entirely contained inside the lamp and operates in real-time, "always-listening" mode. It runs on a small, low-power, fanless board and acts as the light control interface. The prototype shows the feasibility, potential and limits of the integration of speech technology in devices of everyday use.
