A voice input project


#1

Woooweee, hacking the CHIP to convert Video Out to Audio In was a bit stressful, but it worked and I thought I would share what I created. The CHIP now lives in a rotary phone mounted to my wall. When I pick up the receiver, voice recognition software is executed, and when a preset voice command is spoken the software will run a shell script associated with the voice command. Currently, the only preset voice commands are “lights on” and “lights off”.

Excellent! It came out looking quite nice!

Reminds me of the CHIP Alexa project I saw floating around recently, haha.
