HAL 9000. But I’d want it to be a real AI, not just a pre-recorded message.

Of course, I’m not gonna make the mistake of letting Hal control my pod-bay doors. My pod-bay doors are gonna be locked by an old-fashioned mechanical key and opened with an ordinary handle.

My own voice. haha People say that it’s soothing.

Or, Dolly Parton.

I think my own voice is preferable. I can use the tone and inflection I want to project. If I had to use someone else’s voice I’d choose Mickey Mouse.

Or maybe GLaDOS instead of HAL.

Likewise, GLaDOS won’t have any control over my supply of deadly neurotoxin or to re-arrange my walls.

Stephen Hawking & i’d have the message read as follows…..
“In but a brief history of time your call shall be answered…...”

Eminem for my house phone. The only calls we get there are sales calls and it would scare them away hearing him scream at them.

Isaiah Mustafa from the Old Spice commercials. A voicemail generator with his voice can be found here.

Karl Casell

And that would probably mean people identified me as smart and up to date with news.

Captain Spaulding. It doesn’t matter what he would say, it would be epic as hell.
