Owing to its low cost, Raspberry Pi has become extremely popular among developers and enthusiasts. Arthur Amarra aka Algorhythmic has created a voice controlled robotic arm powered by Raspberry Pi, Debian and open source software.
Arthur says, "Due to its small size and low power requirements, the Raspberry Pi is an excellent platform for the Julius open-source speech recognition system. This opens up almost limitless possibilities for voice command applications."
Algorhythmic has described in the blog post how he created this setup.
Algorhythmic is using open source speech recognition toolkit Julius to control the arm via voice commands.
