Growing up Clippy distracted the heck out of me. I always found myself spending more time typing random things just to play a game with Clippy instead of finishing papers that were always inevitably due in a matter of hours. On reflection, maybe Clippy wasn’t the problem 😎 Annnnyway, David Packman decided it was time to bring Clippy back 2023 style as ClippyGPT:
Did you ever want to make your robot friend more conversational? I sure have, so I built ClippyGPT as a proof of concept for integrating OpenAI and Azure Speech Services into robotics using Python to give my companion bots more personality and make them more engaging. Now you can build your own ClippyGPT or use the sample code to integrate ChatGPT into your next robot project!

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.
