    Related machines in my collection :
    this is a one-of-a-kind machine that i cannot compare to any other until i have properly tested it...
    The JH-600 is different from any other machine in my collection at least fr one major reason : it's the only one that relies exclusively on an external power source to run!
    But the machine has many more particularities! Maybe the *actual* major one is the "voice recognition feature"... Don't ask me more about it, tho, as i have not tested it yet and i was not able to understand exactly what it was supposed to do from the documents i have (they are in japanese).
    Relying on the indications written on the device, the machine has 3 modes : COMP, MEMO, and TERM. It's a safe guess to assume that the former is a COMPUTER mode (as in Basic programming i think) and the latter is a TERMINAL mode. The MEMO mode seems self-explicit to me, i think it should be some sort of databank mode (but then again, this must imply persistant memory, or it would be totally useless once the machine is unplugged).
    From the illustrations i've seen, i would say that the machine will not only respond to vocal commands, but also has the ability to produce synthetic voice feedback.
    As it seems to offer a Terminal mode, maybe it was designed to operate various equipment through a vocal interface?
    I know that it's in several Japanese companies corporate cultures to bring R&D products to the market and see how they do, so maybe this one was such an attempt to turn R&D technology into a consumer product by testing the market. I really don't know much more,
