ChatterBot

Wearable device that (audibly) finishes other people's sentences

You've seen those annoying commercials: some smartypants finishes the other person's sentences, appearing all wise and all knowing.

Now you can appear nearly telepathic by wearing the ChatterBot bracelet. Using a combination of technologies that are already being used in products such as Google's Instant Search and voice/handwriting recognition, the ChatterBot will attempt to predict, and as quickly as possible during any given spoken sentence, interrupt the speaking person with its audible prediction of the next word or sentence.

Version 2.0 might add emulative speech to text based on a recorded vocabulary, so it appears that you are the one actually guessing the other person's meaning.
