Artificial Intelligence front end
I want a Artificial Intelligence in my vehicle, do you? (Think K.I.T.T. from the knight Rider) if so I believe I have found a program that with some plug-ins can help us have a Artificial Intelligence hands free voice controlled front end friend. Not only that with plug-ins it can via voice start our car, unlock doors even open them for us, turn on wipers, and high beams. the possibilities are endless with its X10 and vb plug-in support. about the program

I have Zabaware Ultra Hal Assistant on my main pc and plan to use it in my vehicle pc once finshed. I say vehicle for I have not decided what vehicle to put in into yet (suv, car, or boat). I would like to use it by itself as a front end, but vb plug-ins is out of my scripting league at the moment. So I tried to have it open in RR w/ a digital FX4 skin, in the external apps area. Unfortunately it did not work 100%. I created the folder UltraHal inside programFiles(x86)/RideRunner/Launch and inside I placed a ultrahal.ini that I mocked up using the existing notepad and calc for guidence. It worked but not really, it is unusable. The embedded area screen turns pink after a second or two. Then it goes White with two pop up menu buttons on the top right hand side. when opened The first has Ultra Hal programs menu and the second has resolution sizes. if I click on the sizes the program shows up for a split second then disappears again leaving a white embedded area screen behind. After a lil while the program Finally shuts down, but I have to hit close app button to return to external app menu.
This is my ultrahal.ini File
PATH = C:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal Assistant 6\HalAsst.exe
TryEmbeddedTimeOut = 5
WindowSearchString=Ultra Hal Assistant
I'm testing on a Gateway FX laptop with windows Vista home premium 64 bit
if I can't get it inside RR, I will have learn vb to script some plug-ins to make this a front end.
does anyone else want to help script plug-ins or get this inside of RR?
What do you think, should/could it be put into RR, or is it best to be a stand alone front end?
What are your thoughts on this concept?
