Wouldn't it be nice of someone read you a book aloud when you were feeling lazy to read it yourself?
Have you ever wanted to get that Kindle Book into another format, or just copy the text? Have you ever wanted to get all of your highlights or notes off your Kindle?
In this project we make an ebook reading robot with the BrickPi.
We use the BrickPi to control the LEGO Mindstorms to turn the pages, a RaspberryPi camera to take pictures of each page, and the Raspberry Pi to convert the text to speech. The result is an e-book reader that can store text, search for selected text, or read the ebook aloud to you.
