Nobby - The Voice Recognition ClockRated 5/5 based on 13 reviews.
Not since ET has there been such a lovable extra-terrestrial! Say 'Hello' to the real speaking clock.
This sci-fi timepiece actually listens to what you say, recognising and repeating back alarm times and responding to his name!
The adorable Nobby Alarm Clock has a unique personality that you can interact with, and gives answers to six different questions and commands including 'How are you feeling?', 'Sing me a song', 'Make a decision', 'How do I look?', 'Are you hungry?', and 'Go to sleep'.
Nobby uses artificial intelligence to respond to your voice and he'll reply to your questions or commands with some cheeky backchat! This crazy interactive alarm clock likes it when you say his name, responding with a cheery 'Yo' or 'That's me!'
Like the best of us, Nobby can be a little sensitive, so don't shout at him or he may give you the silent treatment!
You can use Nobby as an alarm either by setting him manually, like a normal alarm clock, or by switching him to voice recognition mode. Tell him the time you want your alarm to go off and he'll even repeat it back to you to confirm - just say the word, and he'll obey!
Nobby not only beeps to wake you up, but chats away to you as well. To turn the alarm off, say 'alarm off', or, if you're not a morning person and you're feeling a little irritable, you can shake him.
Dimensions: 21cm x 11cm x 12.5cm
Requires either a mains adapter (included) or 3 x AA (not included).
Nobby is more responsive when using the mains adapter as the voice recognition feature uses a lot of battery power.

Cool Things provide unique and cool items, most of which are not found in shopping centres. The delivery of my Nobby clock was prompt and arrived well packaged to protect the clock from any damage.
I bought this clock for my son's birthday, needlesBy: Joanne K on 17 July 2009I bought this clock for my son's birthday, needless to say I had to check it out to make sure it worked. It's so cool I was tempted to buy him something else and keep it for myself but that would be wrong - Nobby is fantastic. Thank you for your excellent service. I will definitely buy with you again. Many thanks

This is SO cool!! Nobby has quite the sense of humBy: Karen D on 19 June 2009This is SO cool!! Nobby has quite the sense of humour, and his voice is really clear (unlike some other electronic speaking toys). He also recognises people's voices and phrases quite well without any voice training. Very simple and easy to use and lots of fun!! Would recommend to anyone!

What can I say about my Nobby? Well he is one of tBy: Shelley S on 12 June 2009What can I say about my Nobby? Well he is one of the funniest little items I have ever bought. My whole family has a ball talking with him and they get a good laugh at some of his replies. My only word of advice if you are going to buy nobby is to flick the voice switch off at night when going to bed, we found out on our first night with nobby that for no reason he decides to have a chat in the middle of the night ???? Its a bit unnerving to be woken up at 3:00am to the sound of your alarm clock telling you hes famished :-) His voice recognition is pretty good, he still makes some mistakes, Like if you ask him to sing a song he sometimes says "Alarm Setting" , but otherwise he works just fine. The only other thing I would have liked Nobby to do is to have a snooze option on alarm, but nevermind. Also it gives you a strange sense of satisfaction in the morning when he starts telling you its time to get up, you can grab him around the neck and shake him and he turns the alarm off, pretty cool!
