Voice-activated personal assistant with Raspberry Pi as functioning brain

Raspberri Pi assistant

Instructables user [janw] has made for himself a Raspberry Pi powered personal assistant that can tell weather stats or play music just by voice commands. Made from a dust-biting 1950s bakelite Televox intercom purchased from local store for just $9, the Raspberri Personal Assistant speaks out certain things when demanded. Since intercom made for a very good platform for making such a project, Raspberry Pi was the best thing he could use for gaining such interesting functionality. The speech script does all the talking as it returns pre-defined output of your own scripts. [janw] has published the instructions to make Raspberri Personal Assistant and after the jump you can watch the video of the DIY project in action.
