If you are a regular MagPi magazine subscriber, you’ll know in issue 57 they had their most popular giveaway with the Google AIY Project Voice Kit. Unfortunately, I was one of those unlucky people not to get my hands one. After seeing all the fun everyone was having on twitter though, I decided to do what I do best and make my own. Now, if you know me at all by now, you know I like my retro tech, so for this project, rather than just creating a plain old box for it I decided to repurpose another beloved 80s toy of mine, my Mr Money moneybox. The result? Hilarious 😀
