A 'Kiss' prototype was built which used speech. Allan Reizman, Engineering Lab Supervisor at Bally, shares his remembrances of this:
The talking Kiss prototype did make it out of the lab at least once and was displayed at the 1979 AMOA show in Chicago where it was viewed by all. I believe it said things like, "Shoot the K" and "Kiss!" when you completed a Kiss row. Somebody recently reminded me it groaned, "Too much Rock and Roll!" when you tilted it.
The game was only done as a one-time concept.
