The latest issue of The MagPi is out and it is a little bit special. It comes with a kit from Google that allows you to add voice interactivity to your Raspberry Pi projects.
If you aren’t already running to the shops then carry on reading while that sinks in.
Not content with giving away a computer on the cover The MagPi is now giving away artificial intelligence. You’ll need to provide your own Pi (Pi 2, Pi 3 or Pi Zero) and SD card but then you have a device that will be the envy of all your friends and family.
Here is a video explanation :
This kit can be used to build a cardboard device that uses the Google Assistant SDK to answer questions, like “how far away is the Moon?” or “what is 18 percent of 92?”. You can also register natural language voice commands, such as “turn the lights on”, or “robot, turn right and move forwards” to control your creations.
The kit includes:
- An add-on board
- Cardboard case to mount it all in
This is so AWESOME. For £5.99 it’s probably the best value for money kit you will ever buy.
If that wasn’t enough Issue 57 also includes:
- Hack an Amazon Dash button
- Master the basics of Minecraft Pi
- Add an off switch to your Raspberry Pi
- Get the gear you need with the makers’ toolkit
- And much, much more!
