This is a quick demonstration of kiku voice recognition software and Blender 3D. There are currently about 90 voice commands, based around modeling/rigging, but the commands will work in other modes as well, eg "face" which invokes the F key will make a face in edit mode but will also Make Links in the node editor. This said, one can add multiple commands to invoke a key, see "vertical" and "wire," which both call the Z key.
To keep things safe there is no "quit" or "new" command.
If I missed anything important, or a user wants to change keys, feel free to modify the commands to your liking, it's very simple :)
*I didn't code kiku, I just extended the Blender command list.*
Kiku http://www.workinprogress.ca/kiku/download/ works in Ubuntu and Debian, if you like it and find it useful please donate!

We are lucky today that there are no leaves on the trees, there'd hardly be any left standing. I took a drive to the library this afternoon, traffic lights were out, trees down, police everywhere, craziness. The library's internets were down, so the usual group of people weren't crowded around the computers. I said to the librarian: "Wow, it sure is nice and quiet here today," and as soon as I did the power went out- she just said "Look at what you did." It was great, walking around the books in low light. I felt bad for the librarians though, there was a constant barrage of incoming calls inquiring about their internet. It's like the goddam Dark Ages around here when the www is cut off!
*As a side note, I remember once as a kid I had a Radio Shack circuit kit, with the springs and wires that connected the parts, and I had been working on some project, I think it was radio-based, and as soon as I hooked up the battery the lights went out, another weird coincidence, OR NOT?

I quick logo I whipped up this afternoon to get familiar with inkscape- vector stuff used to drive me nuts but I'm starting to enjoy it!
*as a side note Buffalo Lab isn't affiliated with this logo at this time- If they want their name removed shoot me a cease and desist!
