Use Google Voice to control just about any computer.

Here you go.   This guy has an example and some hints.  Basically, you write some code to grab messages that are transcribed by Google Voice and then parse and act on the results.  A python version of the Google Voice interface is available at Google Code.  I didn’t see a Java interface, but it should not be too difficult to build.

This is a poller, but if Google ever enables Voice with pubsubhubbub, this could make a pretty passable way to enable cell-based real-time voice control over just about any process.

The other python script, named checkvoicemail.py is where all the cool stuff happens. Using the PyGoogleVoice module of python, this script checks my Google Voice account for voicemails. I have it set to only read the most recent message. It parses the voicemail and checks it to see if “Message” is the first word. If it isn’t, it sits back and waits for one that does.
