The society that we live in happens to have a love for ice cream. Where or how this love connection began is a myth to many of us. This is because it seems that no one can put an exact finger on when the craze exactly began. Sure, there is evidence as to who or where it was created, but it still does not give us the answer as to why we love it. Ice cream offers us the taste bud excitement and emotional satisfaction that only it can provide. It appears that this cool product happens to know how to make us perfectly happy. There has always been a feeling that ice cream can help make people feel better about themselves. One company tends to agree with this perception and took ice cream infatuation to another level.
A company, which would like to keep it’s name confidential for the time being, has created the Dr. Whippy ice cream machine. It is interesting to look at this product without being provided any of the technological knowledge. What you see is a very typical ice cream machine. The design and functions appear to be almost identical to what we are used to seeing when we go out for ice cream. We fail to realize that the Dr. Whippy ice cream machine comes with quite the unique twist to it. The company has found a way to make the machine recognize when we are not in the best of moods. This allows the machine to better cater to our want and needs.
To gain a further understanding of what it is that I am talking about will require taking a closer look at the technological properties. The properties are actually simple in fact, but unique as well. You walk up to the ice cream machine and tell it what it is that you want. The ice cream machine will then use a built in voice stress analyzer to analyze your voice. This allows the ice cream to determine to a certain degree as to how you are feeling at that exact moment. If you are happy, you will not receive a large amount of ice cream because it is not needed. However, the more sad that you are, the more ice cream that you receive. Dr. Whippy will ensure that the individual receives the right amount of ice cream to help satisfy the emotional needs of the ice cream wanter.
This is a neat concept that still needs a lot of work. One thing that had me wondering revolved around the small selection if ice cream flavors that there was to choose from. I am one of those ice cream lovers who likes to have a big variety of options. The first demo of this machine only had the flavors of vanilla and chocolate to choose from. It will be interesting to see how the company incorporates more flavors in the near future. Plus, I am not sure how popular or accurate such a device can be. Voice stress analyzer software is a great thing to use, but I am still skeptical that it can tell the exact amount of ice cream I want at the time. Still, the company sticks by the fact that the software can indeed decide the appropriate amount for you. I think the key word used there is “appropriate”. Basically, the company will decide for us what it the right amount of ice cream to have. The machine should hit the market sometime next year.
