Something useful with Bluetooth. Who’da thunk?
The Parrot CK3000 Evolution is a bluetooth enabled device that makes taking and making telephone calls in your car as easy as stealing candy from a baby. Essentially, the professional-installation-only system syncs with your bluetooth enabled cell and responds to voice commands. Say “Call Cindy” and it’ll call you for. It’s then retransmit the conversation via the car’s sound system in full duplex, with noise reduction.
A call coming in? It’ll display the number and any associated picture, for you to decide whether to take it or ignore it.
If two more people in the car also have Bluetooth enabled cells, it doesn’t get phased and allows up to three people to call (no mention of what happens with 4 or more).
Really very useful if you’re the kind of person who needs to have both hands glued to the wheel at all times.
