Panasonic 2013 Smart TVs wield Nuance Dragon TV for voice control, text-to-speech
Panasonic and Nuance have been close partners on TV voice recognition in the past; we now know that they’re getting a bit cozier for Panasonic’s 2013 Smart TVs. The company’s newer LCDs and plasmas with voice recognition use Nuance’s Dragon TV for voice-only control of basics like volume as well as content and web searches. The engine will also speak out content and menus if you need more than just visual confirmation of where you’re going. Panasonic’s refreshed TV line is gradually rolling out over the spring, so those who see a plastic remote control as so very 2010 won’t have long to wait.

Panasonic Shows Cloud-Based “Smart Vegetable Garden” Device For Home Use | TechCrunch
Panasonic isn’t  just making TVs, phones, or cameras, they are also producing household  appliances. One such appliance has recently been introduced by Japanese  business daily The Nikkei, and it’s probably the first cloud-based  device for growing fruit and vegetables at home out there.
Four leaf vegetables can be grown in one so-called “Smart Vegetable  Garden” (which is sized at 100x50x30cm) at the same time, with Panasonic  claiming that owners can expect to harvest them in about 40 days – 30%  less than using conventional methods. Apart from saving time, the device  also integrates a cloud-based management system to track growth, for  example by automatically screening the level of water and nutrients, or  the temperature.
