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!
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.
