This is a 2005 Nabaztag Smart Rabbit that I’ve rebuilt using a Raspberry Pi 3. It uses the Amazon Alexa voice service to translate your speech into actions, and reads out notifications and alerts using the Ivona Text-to-Speech engine. It’s integrated with IFTTT so that Facebook, Twitter, SMS and Email messages can all be read out.
It also moves its ears while speaking thanks to an Adafruit DC Motor HAT, and can take voice-activated selfies and upload them to Twitter using the Raspberry Pi camera module.
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!
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.
