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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
