My desire to do this project was based on having a life size C-3PO bust, and it constantly looking at me, saying nothing. I just needed it to talk. Plus, I liked that such a project would have both software and hardware interaction.
Project Objective: Allow visitors to make C-3PO talk from both his quotes from all six movies, as well as being able to speak sentences based on the words extracted from the movie quotes. The user would use either their smartphone or our media center tablet to visit a website hosted on a computer of some sort, and when the user selects quotes or types in his/her own sentences, they would play out at the C-3PO bust itself. Note that the way I’ve done the software and the methodology I used, could be applied to any bust or talker project desire, should you so have the stubbornness to proceed…
