Dr. Tape Head – The perfect lab companion @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Wonderfully wacky build from Martin Mander up on Hackster.io.
Dr. Tape Head is the perfect spooky companion when you’re working late in the lab! He uses Amazon’s Polly service to read out text from a Google Sheets spreadsheet, populated by the IFTTT service and gathered from Twitter, SMS messages and camera motion alerts. He’s even integrated with Google Assistant so you can remotely dictate tailored messages to spook those pesky trick-or-treaters.
