In the same month that it celebrates its 35th anniversary, the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science (LCS) is launching Project Oxygen, which hopes to make everyday computing easier for ordinary people. LCS will investigate technologies such as speech recognition, mobile computing and wireless technologies that will help people "do more by doing less". One of the project's aims is to create a voice-activated device called a Handy, that would combine TV, radio, wireless telephone and Internet browser, as well as a high-performance computer. Oxygen is a five-year, multi-million pound research project, pursued in collaboration with MIT's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and sponsored by the US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
