Just in time for the sequel... growing up I loved scifi interfaces and loved a thing called ESPER, a TV like machine that Harrison Ford interacted with half drunk by talking to it and hunting for clues.

I tried recreating it online for a coding talk I did and while not perfect(it's a crude prototype) it is somehow fun when it works, give it a try:

The voice recognition works well - fun! Couldn't get to Waldo, though I think I found him.
