R3 was produced for Scottish Courage as an internal device to present a friendly front-end to their company-wide roll out of the SAP/R3 database system.

The Toy produces a speech bubble containing a message of the day which is referenced from an external file.

You can use this facility yourself to deliver company-wide messages or send messages between a group of people - take a look at the file called 'message.txt'.

This Toy also supports Voice Recognition, using Microsoft's Command and Control software. You can issue commands to R3 via a microphone with no need to train the system to your voice.

To use Voice Recognition, download and install Command and Control, then download the Voice Server software and place it in the same folder as the Toy.
