Steven Hawking has handed his legacy to the long suffering voice synthesiser, it has emerged.

Friends close to the the 76 year old titan of theoretical physics -who died on Wednesday- said that in recent years Hawking had delegated increasing amounts of the more mundane elements of black hole research to the machine.

‘At first he just set the box up to answer the more annoying questions he would be asked, such as “Is there a God?” and “When can I get on the Starship Enterprise?” said a close friend. ‘But soon he realised that with a little tuition he could handover more taxing work, like calculating the effects of quantum gravity, the logical paradoxes of time travel and how Kanye West is a thing’ she added.

‘By the end, and by the professor’s own admission, the synthesizer was doing a great deal of the “heavy lifting” while Steven worked on the logistics for space colonisation and completing Sweet Rush Saga on mirror-reverse mode’ she revealed.

The mobility device and voice box will now be rented out to aspiring geniuses, in the hope that they might see further by sitting in the chairs of giants.
