Before I could attempt to get creative with the code examples – we first had to build the kit and make sure it worked with the things and code that was provided.

I have used the images from the aiyprojects.withgoogle.com/voice page. They are great pictures and show step by step how to put things together, I may have forgotten to take step by step pics as we built it too.

Prep the SD Card

With the voice SD image we downloaded in pt1 – use etcher to flash the SD card and get it ready for the Pi.

The voice image is a version of Rasbrian with some added extra’s to help with the project.

 

Second Step – Build the hardware

The hardware was pretty straight forward … following the instructions on the AIY site

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once it was all assembled put the prepped SD card in the pi .. its too difficult to wrangle it in once in the box.

Step three – Build the box

This bit is a bit like origami with cardboard ..  I may have got a bit sweary at this point .. but if you follow the picture guide and work out what way up things need to go you are good .. it took longer to build the box than add the HAT to the Pi …

Step four – Put the Pi Hat in the box

 

Took a bit of sliding and making sure the cables weren’t tangled

Make sure all the ports line up as they should so you can plug the pi in

 

 

 

 

 

Now to fit the arcade button, switch, light and wire it up .. Then line the mic up and tape it on the inside flap of the box.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As if by magic .. it is done .. we have a BOX of AIY fun to start playing with

Plug it in .. and update it

Plug you pi in and fire it up. You need a USB keyboard and mouse and HDMI connection to a monitor ot TV. I had an issue with getting some of the built in code to run – this was resolved by updating the pi. Boot it up and connect it to the wireless network and then update.

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

Once your pi has updated you should be good. You have a lovely desktop environment with all the example code ready installed to play with

 

Verify its working

Let’s check the audio first – on the desktop there is a Check Audio file. Double click it to run. the speaker test will play first, you are then prompted to speak so it can test the playback.

 

 

 

 

Here is a short video of it working.

 

 

There is also a check wifi file .. but we know the wifi is good as we have updated already .. but if you REALLY want to test it .. go for it 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are ALL set and ready to go .. next step is playing with the example code .. come back for part 3 of #projecttalkie and I will show you what I did next

You are a Connections / WebSphere admin what do you care about Domino? I hear people ask – well actually I care a lot .. I use these products every day – I can’t do my job with out Domino / Verse / Notes and Sametime. After what can only be described as a lack of love for the Domino/Notes stack IBM have made a HUGE announcement in partnering with the development team at HCL Technologies to bring a new version to the beloved Domino stack.

So at last IBM Docs 2 CR3 has been released and with it some awesome new features that the community have been asking for (thank you IBM). What’s new in Docs 2 CR3? LOADS of new features and fixes including … The most exciting is probably the ability to deploy the Conversion server on linux (finally)!! You can directly deploy Conversion server on Linux when installing IBM Docs. If you already have IBM Docs installed with Conversion server on Windows, you can migrate existing Conve

Issues with IBM Connections 5 / 5.5 and Chrome 60

There is a known issue with Connections 5 CR4 and all versions of Connections 5.5 when using Chrome version 60. It affects events not being displayed and errors relating to events in the UI. It has also been reported that comments can be affected also. After multiple BP’s and Customers reported this IBM Support have come up with a fix very quickly. The fix you need is IFLO92844 – currently it is only available from IBM support – not sure how long it will be until it is availabl

I am sure that lots of you have installed or started migrations to Connections 6 by now .. but I have found a couple of gotchas across the installs and updates that I have managed so far. I am listing them here for sanities sake as I know when we google an error – this blog will show up Connections 6 itself Generally this was a nice smooth install and all worked as it should in a clean 6 environment On testing a migration though I found issues when trying to migrate some of the DBs.

I am Running for Feel the Force Day …. My partner in crime Sam will be joining me again this year, along with Jonathan and Mandy will make up the #TeamRun4FTFD to raise funds. Jonathan has cerebal palsy and he doesn’t let that slow him down. Mad on trucks, cars and any kind of awesome vehicle (just see Shaw on Tour for details), he has recently done a bunch of exciting stuff including running (in a race chair), ice skating and trampolining. Mandy is the biscuit queen Famous for her

Let’s get Stitch talking – Project #talkie pt 3
Mon, Jun 5th 2017 2:41p   Sharon Bellamy
So after building the kit and testing that it worked .. It was time to get creative .. there are some examples on what to do code wise on the AIY kit voice site First I had to go through the billing set up and processes. Even though the code is free, and the kit is free and they give you $300 worth of credit – you still have to set up billing. It was a pain as I already had a cloud dev account for some of the APIs I use on bit of my sites, but eventually I worked it out – I may have

On May the 4th (also known as StarWars day – you work it out) one of my good friends and former co worker (not sure how he put up sitting opposite me for 2 and a half years ) Mr Dave Sheryn pinged me with an interesting link to a starwars costume competition .. “That’ll be fun”, I thought, “will give it ago .. have a snowballs chance in hell of winning” – so I posted this pic of me With the message O well if we are showing off star wars costumes .. thi

What’s all this #talkie stuff about then? So I have been posting stuff on facebook twitter and instragram with the #projecttalkie or #talkie hash tag .. Most of you know that I costume .. and as well as my love for star wars (and my mandalorian costume), I also LOVE to costume as Stitch … You can see me here as my favourite fluffy blue alien experiment (626) with my good pal and all around lovely Captain America friend Mr James Budd. Again most of you know that i am a HUGE supporte
