Hey, here is my project that creates a web based TV and voice remote using the HUZZAH ESP8266 Feather that I thought you will be interested in. In addition to using a web page from your phone as a TV remote, the device integrates voice commands, allowing you to say things like “turn on the TV”, “turn the TV volume up”, “switch input to Roku” and a
bunch of other commands. It utilizes IFTTT.com to integrate the voice commands with the ESP8266 device. The specifics are outlined in the article.
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.
