Interactive Voice to Debut First Hands-free Intelligent Assistant for the Home at CES 2013

At the 2013 CES in Las Vegas, Attendees Will Meet ivee Sleek - a Hands-Free, Voice-Activated, Internet-Connected Assistant for the Home

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 18, 2012 -- Interactive Voice, a pioneer

in voice-controlled electronics, today announced the company will debut its
newest device, ivee Sleek, at the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas on
Jan. 8. ivee Sleek is the first hands-free, voice-activated,
internet-connected assistant for the home that answers questions, obeys
commands and controls other internet-connected devices.

"I've always dreamed of talking to an artificial intelligence system that
could control my home" said Jonathon Nostrant, chief executive officer and
founder of ivee. "We saw the beginnings of voice recognition and personal
assistant technology on mobile phones, but they never provided the
experience we were looking for."

Meet ivee Sleek

-- She listens: Activated by the simple phrase "hello ivee," ivee awakens
and then waits for your verbal command or question. ivee uses the AT&T
Speech API powered by the AT&T WATSONSM speech recognition engine
before sending the response on to her own cloud-based intelligence system.
-- She understands: Using natural language understanding, machine
learning, and Wolfram|Alpha's computational knowledge engine, ivee understands
you and responds accordingly. For example, if you ask ivee how the weather
in Las Vegas is, she responds, "Today in Las Vegas, you can expect
sunny skies and temperatures between 71 and 74 degrees." ivee responds with
both an audio and visual reply.
-- She's not clingy: ivee's advanced voice trigger technology allows you
to wake the device without any hands. Two beam-forming microphones cancel
ambient noise and make it possible to talk to ivee from up to 10 feet
away. In addition, light and temperature sensors are used to detect
ivee's ambient surroundings, making her smart and aware.
-- She's "ivee" league smart: At launch, ivee Sleek will understand and
answer questions within 33 categories, including time, alarms, news,
reminders, stocks, traffic reports, sleep sounds, and even bedtime
stories. ivee will also be able to control other internet-connected
devices like Wi-Fi thermostats. And because her technology is
cloud-based, she will continuously grow, becoming smarter and more
personalized to both her owner and her surroundings.
-- She's beautiful: Her fluid curves and soft matte finish create an
elegant look that complements her simple brilliance. Featuring a large
display and thoughtful user interface, ivee is easy to use for
in your home, and she will quickly become the newest member of your

ivee can first be seen on Jan. 7, 2013 at the AT&T Developer's Summit and at
CES from Jan. 8-11, 2013, at South Hall 2 Booth #25827.

ivee Sleek ($199) will be available for preorder in January and will ship in
