If you have two hands, you can't help but applaud the original Clapper. First sold in 1985, it worked with a lamp or any other electric device. You plugged the Clapper into an outlet. Then you plugged your lamp into the Clapper. By clapping twice, you turned the lamp on or off. It was a convenient gadget that also became popular with handicapped people. TV commercials showed grandma lying in bed reading. She put her book down, clapped twice, and went to sleep with a big smile on her face. She didn't have to reach for the lamp switch or get out of bed and turn off the wall switch. The only problem with the original Clapper was that your barking dog, or your neighbor's dog, could also turn your lamp on or off.

The current Clapper works with two lamps or other devices, such as radios and TVs. TV commercials show grandma reading in bed while the TV is on. She puts the book down, claps twice to turn off the TV, and claps three times to turn off the lamp. Then she goes to sleep with a big smile on her face.

Clapper Plus is a big hit, too. It can be adjusted to respond to the loudness of your clapping. It has a light to indicate if you are clapping loudly enough. It has an "Away" setting for security; when you're not home, Clapper Plus will automatically turn on a light or the TV if it detects a noise. The light or TV should help scare away intruders. Clapper Plus also comes with a remote control, so that if grandma is extra tired, all she has to do is click the remote. The two versions sell for about $20 and $30.

A $40 version might be in stores next year. Because many people feel that clapping or clicking is "a lot of work," the company is developing a voice-operated Clapper. The ultimate goal, said a Clapper spokesman, is a thought-operated Clapper.

Quả lắc chuông

Nếu bạn có hai bàn tay, bạn không giúp gì ngoài việc vỗ tay khen ngợi quả lắc chuông đầu tiên. Bán lần đầu vào năm 1985, nó có hiệu quả trên đèn và những loại phương tiện điện tử. Bạn cắm thiết bị này vào một nguồn điện, và cắm đèn vào thiết bị. Vỗ tay hai cái, bạn đã bật đèn hoặc tắt đèn. Đó là một thiết bị nhỏ tiện lợi phổ biến cho những người tàn tật. TV thương mại chiếu hình bà nằm trên giường và đọc sách. Khi đặt sách xuống, vỗ tay hai cái, và đi ngủ với nụ cười rạng rỡ trên mặt. Bà không phải đến công tắc đèn hay ra khỏi giường để tắt công tắc trên tường. Vấn đề duy nhất của thiết bị đầu tiên là tiếng chó của bạn sủa, hoặc chó nhà hàng xóm, cũng làm bật hoặc tắt đèn.

Cái thiết bị hiện tại có thể tác dụng trên hai cái đèn hoặc những dụng cụ điện khác, như radio hay TV. Quảng cáo TV chiếu hành bà cụ đọc sách trên giường khi TV đang bật. BÀ bỏ sách xuống, vỗ tay hai cái để tắt TV, và ba cái để tắt đèn. Rồi bà đi ngủ với nụ cười rạng rỡ trên khuôn mặt.

Clapper Plus cũng là một cú ngoạn mục. Nó có thể điều chỉnh để đáp ứng với độ lớn của tiếng vỗ tay. Có đèn để chỉ xem bạn vỗ tay có đủ lớn không. Có một cài đặt chế độ an ninh "Đi vắng"; khi bạn không có ở nhà, Clapper Plus sẽ tự động mở TV nếu phát hiện ra tiếng động. Ánh sáng TV có thể làm kẻ xâm nhập sợ. Clapper Plus cũng có bộ phận điều khiển từ xa, để bà cụ nếu quá mệt, bà chỉ cần bấm điều khiển từ xa. Hai phiên bản mới bán khoảng $20 và $30.

Phiên bản $40 có thể bán vào năm sau. Vì nhiều người thấy vỗ tay hay lắc "nhiều việc làm quá," công ty đang phát triển một lắc chuông hoạt động theo tiếng nói. Mục tiêu sau cùng, phát ngôn từ Clapper, là lắc chuông bằng suy nghĩ.

Nếu bạn có hai bàn tay, đương nhiên bạn phải vỗ tay ca ngợi chiếc Máy vỗ tay đầu tiên. Được bán lần đầu vào năm 1985, nó hoạt động với đèn hoặc với các thiết bị điện khác. Bạn cắm phích Máy vỗ tay vào ổ cắm điện. Sau đó bạn cắm đèn vào Máy vỗ tay. Bằng cách vỗ tay hai lần, bạn bật đèn hoặc tắt đèn. Đó là một món đồ điện tử thuận tiện và trở nên phổ biến với những người tàn tật. Chương trình quảng cáo trên ti-vi cho thấy một cụ bà nằm trên giường đọc sách. Bà đặt sách xuống, vỗ tay hai lần, và chìm vào giấc ngủ với nụ cười hài lòng trên khuôn mặt. Bà không phải với tới công tắc đèn hoặc bước ra khỏi giường để tắt công tắc trên tường. Vấn đề duy nhất đối với chiếc máy vỗ tay đầu tiên là chó nhà bạn sủa hoặc chó của nhà hàng xóm sủa, cũng có thể bật hoặc tắt đèn của nhà bạn.

Những chiếc Máy vỗ tay hiện hành hoạt động với hai ngọn đèn hoặc với các thiết bị khác, như ra-đi-ô và ti-vi. Chương trình quảng cáo trên ti-vi cho thấy một cụ bà nằm đọc sách trên giường trong khi ti-vi đang bật. Bà để sách xuống, vỗ tay hai lần để tắt ti-vi, và vỗ tay ba lần để tắt đèn. Rồi bà chìm vào giấc ngủ với nụ cười hài lòng trên khuôn mặt.

Máy vỗ tay cải tiến cũng là một món hàng được ưa chuộng. Nó có thể điều chỉnh để đáp ứng với độ lớn ở tiếng vỗ tay của bạn. Nó có đèn biểu thị nếu bạn vỗ tay vừa đủ lớn. Nó có chế độ cài đặt "vắng nhà" vì lý do an ninh; Lúc bạn không ở nhà, Máy vỗ tay cải tiến sẽ tự động bật đèn hoặc ti-vi nếu nó phát hiện có tiếng động. Ánh đèn hoặc tiếng ti-vi có thể làm những kẻ xâm nhập sợ hãi. Máy vỗ tay cải tiến cũng đi kèm với một cái điều khiển từ xa, do đó nếu bà có mệt thêm, tất cả những gì bà phải làm là bấm cái điều khiển từ xa. Có hai phiên bản bán với giá khoảng 20 đô-la và 30 đô-la.

Phiên bản giá 40 đô-la có thể có ở các cửa hàng trong năm tới. Do mọi người cảm thấy việc vỗ tay hoặc bấm điều khiển "tốn nhiều công sức quá," công ty đang phát triển loại máy vỗ tay được điều khiển bằng giọng nói. Mục tiêu sau cùng, người phát ngôn của Clapper cho biết, là Máy vỗ tay được điều khiển bằng suy nghĩ.

ESL đăng ký: Bạn không cần phải đăng ký gì cả. Chỉ việc nhẩy vào bài ESL 1 học và làm bài tập. Tiếp tục những bài kế tiếp càng nhanh càng tốt. Mình sẽ 888 và thỉnh thoảng cùng nhau nhắc nhở cho vui hén. Chứ thật ra việc học là việc của tự bản thân mình. Mình giỏi thì mình được nhờ hén.
