Took a bit of digging, but I found the patent "Speech recognition microcomputer": http://goo.gl/XRwxfu Looks like the inventor is listed as Myron H. Hitchcock for most of his voice work (several patents), but dropped he the H later on.

Wearing my +Chris Gammell "Never trust the autorouter" T-Shirt at for casual Friday.  Co-workers approve!
We've all been tricked into thinking clicking that "autoroute" button would work. Why wouldn't it? Surely a computer can compute how to lay out a PCB, right? Nope. This shirt shows why you shouldn't ever trust the autorouter; ignore the advice at your own peril.

Have you seen my fundraiser on Tindie? It's a collaborative effort between myself and +Raivis Rengelis - a breakout board for the really neat, TCS3471 Color Sensor by AMS.  Definitely worth checking out if you're into microcontrollers, Arduino or sensors in general.

Raivis just finished a great library for Ardunio for the board, and there's a neat demo video in the works.  There are also rumors of a linux driver for Raspberry Pi if we meet the funding goal - cool stuff! 

There's 10 days left, so if you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check it out and share the post if you like it.

Nothing - unfortunately. I saw some great ebay auctions here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/UNIVERSAL-INSTRUMENTS-CORP-HIGH-SPEED-PICK-AND-PLACE-SYSTEM-/390986979565?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5b08a3d8ed
Which were very close to me. I went to inspect the stuff, (mainly the robot arms) and found it was much larger than I could possibly handle. Someone is going to get an insane deal on what essentially is an entire SMT line and a wire bonder.

Very long weekend ahead - Judging the first round entries for The Hackaday Prize. 15 hours worth of 2 minute videos to watch. Oy! Giving away a free trip to space isn't easy.
