I envisioned an idea where you could rather than controlling your computer with a mouse, you can do it with your voice. This got me thinking, Siri is available for Apple devices and Cortana is available for Windows devices but what about Linux? So I embarked on a project to attempt to bring this ability to the Raspberry Pi, I know that it would take a long time and might not happen however I stuck at it and finally created a product. Meet “Monty”! Named The “Monty” Project, I made a piece of software where you could interact with your Raspberry Pi via Voice. So far, you can execute some basic commands that would normally be used in terminal and you can exchange pleasantries.
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!
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
