Fancy. I have the original

Fancy! I have the original separate VecVox and AtariVox. I believe what's in the video is the combined unit, which is coming out soon. I'll probably have to pick it up as well. Gotta love classic style speech synthesis!

I have the original too :)

Actually, what's in the VecVox speaker cabinet is the original VecVox circuit from 2004 (I know because I put it in there :) ). Before the VecVox was the VecVoice from 2002. The speech chip for the VecVoice went obsolete, that's why VecVox (based on a newer chip) came out. VecVox can emulate VecVoice.

But you are right there is a new combined VecVoice/VecVox and AtariVox coming soon.

When I found the old passive speakers in my loft I couldn't resist to put my VecVox in one of the speaker cabinets. The style of the speaker really does fit in with the Vectrex styling.
