NEW GUIDE: Robotic AI Bear using ChatGPT #AdafruitLearningSystem #robotics @Adafruit @MakerMelissa


A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System: Robotic AI Bear using ChatGPT.

The Peek-A-Boo Teddy Bear by GUND is an affordable robotic bear that plays pre-recorded sounds. It has a motorized mouth to simulate talking and motorized arms that can lift a blanket to hide its face.

This guide will show you how to enhance the bear by replacing the electronics inside with a Raspberry Pi 4, an Adafruit Motor HAT, and a couple of options for playing audio such as the MAX98357 I2S Amp and a Mini USB Speaker. The Raspberry Pi 4 will be running a custom Python script that interacts with multiple APIs including two from OpenAI and one from Azure.

It takes inspiration from some iconic bear characters including a popular toy in the 1980s called Teddy Ruxpin that would tell stories while making prerecorded robotic gestures and movements. This project was also inspired by the toy bear from the movie A.I., which was advanced robotic companion designed to provide love and comfort to a child.

This project combines the best of both worlds to create a robotic bear that not only tells stories, jokes, and poems, but…
