I don't know about others' experiences, but I think you'll find that using a
microphone in "open air", instead of speaking directly into the microphone,
will yeild unreliable results. I don't think we're technologically ready for
the Star Trek type of interaction with our MH server as of yet.
That said, I've heard of some people interfacing their phones with MH, so
they can use any phone in the house to give MH a command.
Food for thought.
