As a child in the '60s, I found going to the Bronx Zoo a special treat--because the animals talked there. Many of the locations and featured animal attractions had these voice boxes. If I remember correctly, you purchased a key that activated narration in these units and told you about the animal, habitat, etc. Last week, some 40 years later, I felt a touch of that same magic coming from my next-gen phones. Objects, not animals, seemed ready to find their voice.
