Add Voice Control To Electronics With A Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Turn electronic devices, like the roomba, into voice controlled devices with Raspberry pi. via makezine
It’s an old saying that computers aren’t really smart, because they only do what we tell them to do. But now you can actually tell your Raspberry Pi to do something smart — to take control of connected devices in your home — using only your voice. It’s not hard — you can do it easily using some open source software and a Raspberry Pi. Just add an Arduino with an infrared (IR) LED and you can tell your Roomba what to do, too.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
