For those in the Chicago area, please drop by the Rendr exhibition on May 2nd, from 5:30 – 8:00 pm. I’ll be showing an installation I’ve been working on for the last few months which uses a set of 5 Raspberry Pi (inexpensive computers) units, speakers, microphones, and displays. It also involves speech recognition, text-to-speech, custom dictionaries and language models, and Python. I enjoyed teaching myself all sorts of new things (for example, Linux and Python) in order to put it together. I’ll post some documentation (both video of the installation and code) afterward for those who can’t see it in person.
