personal haiku detector/repeater

Speech recognition device to bring out the poetry in our everday lives.

This small pocket-sized device would be constantly listening in on the speech of its wearer or anyone else in proximity. When it recognizes three phrases have been spoken, with 5,7,5 syllables in them, it repeats them loudly in a deep, thunderous, and poetically intonated male voice. A silent mode lets you play back your poems at more appropriate times. A "gold" version of the device listens for the first two phrases and completes haikus with a well-thought out ending.

       Aren't real haiku supposed to have a seasonal reference, a shift of image, and some other stuff we occidental barbarians ignore when we translate into English?

You are way too hard to do.
I can't make one up.

       waugs: i think you're right. i had heard that haiku before, so i figured i should post the author's name, since i found it on an internet search. i guess the posting predated the amalgamation.
