Interactive BB-8 – Part One: Speech Recognition and Radio Streaming

A friend donated their broken remote controlled BB-8 and I’ve set myself the task of making it a fully interactive astromech droid through the use of a Raspberry Pi and App Inventor.

As well as getting voice recognition working, I’ve also got him to use an SDR to pick up ham radio as well as the usual radio stations. I’m thinking of using PiNumberStation to get the droid to transmit messages too.

I’m planning on incorporating Woggle to allow you to talk to BB-8 and hold a conversation.
