The Little Buddy Talker already surpassed the pledged goal of $643 in its initial days.
Ever wondered if you’d able to add voice support for your Arduino projects? How cool would that be? Well, there is a new Kickstarter campaign in town that will just do the thing. Dubbed The Little Buddy Talker, this teeny Arduino shield will let you add the voice of Lucy — a female voice with an English accent — to your smart electronic designs.
The creator of The Little Buddy Talker, Patrick Thomas Mitchell, says:
About a year ago, I designed an Arduino shield that allowed for you to add voice to your electronic designs. I’ve since been able to minimize that design into a much less inexpensive, and smaller unit. This unit has a 254-word library that consists of colors, commands, months/days/time, numbers, directions, feelings, units of measurement, security words, math lingo, and general words; all of which are spoken by “Lucy” – A lovely female voice with an English accent! Meet “The Little Buddy Talker” Arduino compatible speech kit set! It is Production Ready, and eager to land in your hands!
Visit The Little Buddy Talker’s Kickstarter page to know more about the project and show your support. Speaking of support, a pledge of CA $13 or more will fetch you a complete DIY kit version of this Arduino shield. The product will start shipping from February.
