between having him and pynchon as guests, I'd tend to agree

I like that they used his real robot voice.
Caminante Nocturno - 2009-10-20
I'm skeptical.
Time Travel Mishap - 2009-10-20
I'm not sure when this was recorded but he is talking about the episode he made in 99 back when the show was still pretty good.

Caminante Nocturno - 2009-10-21
I'm pretty sure the quality of the show had little to do with Hawking's willingness.

Desidiosus - 2009-10-20
Why is he still using the same synthesized voice after ten years?
simon666 - 2009-10-20
Because it is recognized as his, and in fact is his voice.

jaunch - 2009-10-20
I've thought about that too. Wouldn't it be cool if his voice suddenly switched to the GOOG411 voice? Or any of the modern speech synthesis voices? If I was him, I would definitely switch. I bet there are plenty of companies that would donate the system to him. But like simon666 said, since everyone knows that voice as him, I can see why he wouldn't want to change.

I've also thought about it too. Did anyone see the show where the MIT guy is constantly upgrading his prosthetic leg? I could easily see someone like Hawking taking the opportunity to play with new synthesis tools. Maybe he's afraid of falling in the uncanny valley.

oops, hope no one noticed that

Unmerciful Crushing Force - 2009-10-20
I think they were developing a proper British-accented voice for him a while back but I guess the plans fell through.

Caminante Nocturno - 2009-10-20
I'd like to think that Stephen Hawking and Hatsune Miku are close friends.

I want to see him eat a pizza.

I'd be honoured to go punch someone for Hawking. All he's gotta do is ask and that dude is as good as punched.

La Loco - 2009-10-20
He's like professor X. Life imitates art.
Riskbreaker - 2009-10-20
Used to be Stephen, used to be.

stephen hawking doesn't like pizza? fuck that guy.
pastorofmuppets - 2009-10-21
He's British, he's old, and his mouth doesn't work. He's got reasons man.

JimL2 - 2009-10-23
Bah! Stephen Hawking in a pizzeria! This thing isn't worth the gold it's made of.

IrishWhiskey - 2009-12-09
Hang on, Stephen LOVES pizza. I know, because that's where he discovered the Fry-Hole. I mean, Hawking-Hole.
