Respeaker on Kickstarter: Early birds still available, only 6 hours to go!

Voice control seems to be the next big thing, we have voice controlled alarms, voice controlled lights, and even voice controlled televisions.

Now imagine being able to do this to all your devices, to command your devices and have them reply back to you.

That’s what Respeaker promises, according to their Kickstarter campaign that has met almost 500% of their goal having been launched only a few days ago.

 

Respeaker is an open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices

 

What does it mean? Well, it means you can use Respeaker to have your plant ask for more water when it feels thirsty or to ask your smart album to view last year’s photos.

That’s possible by connecting Respeaker to an ordinary speaker therefore turning it into a voice controlled Wifi speaker capable of online streaming from the cloud, and with the help of their previous product Wio Link you can use Respeaker to record and upload your meetings or modify your schedule as you command.

As of this moment, there are still a lot of early bird rewards, I highly recommend you get them before the campaign ends.

It is also worth to mention that all early bird rewards get this case for the Respeaker (Super cool!)

Seeed Studio is well known for their capacity of handling shipping, it’s not their first Kickstarter.

P.S: You can select a cheaper shipping option to Hong Kong, so you only pay $10 instead of $20, and then you can fill your real address in the survey after the campaign ends.

I already got the crazy early bird for myself, can’t wait to have it! In the mean time, I’m having fun at home with the voice recognition shield in 1Sheeld, where I control my home lights with Arduino and my smartphone, check my tutorial video out and let me know what you think 😉
