Yesterday, a co-worker accidently hit the button on her unit. Instead of saying "cancel" she said "goodbye"... Try it if you have a Vocera at work!
Darn Trekkie nerds...
Anyone discovered any other goodies?

Then, anyone just has to press one button on their unit, which prompts them for a name or desk. They say the name, and they get connected. Unfortunately, the voice recognition is not perfect. It'll take outside phone calls too.
It was apparently developed by a Star Trek fan. If you tell it "Beam me up", it plays a Trek style transporter sound. If you tell it "Goodbye" it responds with a Spock-like voice saying "Live long and prosper".
I've used those as a great icebreaker with nervous patients in the OR.

Supposedly, saying "Beam me down" will bring on a reverse of the "Beam me up" sound, with a crash at the end, but that didn't work for me either.
