Help with JARVIS-like Smart Home

Hey guys,

I am planning to do a project with Smart Home theme.
I would like to create JARVIS-like application, which would be able to recognize my voice and then do appropriate action.

Example: Temperature Sensor

Me: "Jarvis, Show Temperature"
Jarvis: -"Temperature displayed sir"

I am planning to buy a very cheap Tablet, on which I would like to write an Android Application, which would create "jarvis" and other activities. For example, if I say "Show Temperature" the activity would pop up, where the temperature will be displayed.

I will messure temperature with a Thermometer (DS1280 most probably). And I'd like to use a Bluetooth module to communicate Wireless with them.

Temp. Sensor -------- > Arduino board ------------> Tablet

All of the above are on different locations.

I need help with this project, so if anyone could do an instructable on how to do this - would be really awesome!
What do I need ?

- Temp. Sensor
- Bluetooth Module
- Arduino Mega
- Speech regonition software (BitVoicer probably)

- anything else?

Also, is the TFT display ( good enough to replace the Tablet ? 
Meaning, can I write such an Application to this display ?

That is such a neat idea! I'm working on some more home automation right now, but I do have one instructable up using Phidgets ( and there are some instructions for hooking up the SBC to a tablet here: (

I guess that may not be what you're looking for, but maybe there's something in there that can get you going. Good luck!
