Miniature Wall-E Gets a Voice with an Adafruit FX Board

Matt Brailsford has been constructing a desktop version of the robot star of Wall-E. He calls his creation Spark-E, and it looks like the robot is finished. The above video shows a full test. Spark-E’s arms, head, and tire treads all move, and he speaks thanks to an Adafruit FX Board. Brailsford used TouchOSC to send commands.

A test of the sound board:

An early look (and listen) at the sound board:
