Hi, and one more thing. I would like the ability to program and
display any menu it might have from a usb port on the machine.
If it doesent talk have a set of recognisable tones to convey it's status.
It also might be a neat thing to be able thing to create setups from the flash media.
This would mean ofcorce that some kind of software would run on your computer, to create the setings.

While we are dreaming, I would like to see an accessible machine which would record on compact flash and could be set up for different recording parameters. Like the PlexTalk, but much smaller. The problem with the one from ILA is that you can't change parameters and adjust things and there are memory limitation. I think most of us would pay for a quality machine.
Just my opinion,

Why not build the device with a miniature 20/40 gb hard drive? I know hard drives are less than adequate for outdoor recording (especially if one elect to use the internal microphone(s)), but hard drives really are the cheapest storage option, gigabit to dollar. You'd want to insolate the hard drive with shock-absorbent material of course, and in addition, may want to add a removable media card slot (in case someone needs that functionality).
When it comes to firmware rom, you could stand to lower voice quality some, say, down to 8KHZ, to preserve space (And by voice quality, I mean the machine's speech feedback). An 8KHZ, mono sample should take very little room.
There are 1-inch hard drives on the market, so size wouldn't really be too much of an issue here either.

Unfortunately, that means some large storage capacity and battery life which are still a little on the expensive side.
