This is a fantastic project, I have most of the parts list available, i was wondering if i could use the lcd screen from one of my dead cellphones for this as well or would i need a different type of lcd? would love to have more detailed instructions available too if there's a link to a more detailed instructable out there can you post it?

whats a good FREE voice recognition program

fuzvulf made it! (author)fuzvulf2009-02-14

If you have windows Vista you may already have it. simply enter "voice recognition" in the search bar in the start menu. It functions okay. It does need to say "what are you doing Dave? and then start singing Daisy, Daisy whenever you shut down the computer though. >_

moesboy made it! (author)moesboy2009-02-15

the daisy part is a given and no I don't have vista

Where'd you get the LCD?

loup226 made it! (author)loup2262007-12-16

use broken portable dvd 3.5 inch lcd screen

nf119 made it! (author)nf1192007-12-17

Please elaborate, I got a portable player and I am dying to know how you got it to accept VGA or did it naturally come with it? How did you power it? Where did you attach the cable?

loup226 made it! (author)loup2262007-12-17

lot tutorial on internet on how put vga connector on these lcd screen.too much complexe to you describe here .

yokozuna made it! (author)yokozuna2008-11-08

try altavista babelfish for translating foreign language text/websites. search for it on google, copy his link above, and it will translate it to english (or any other language it supports).

gmoon made it! (author)gmoon2007-12-17

Which DVD player? Can you be more specific? That looks like a VGA connector--I don't know of any small, cheap color VGA screens (other than the old PS1 VGA mod.)

altibbacat made it! (author)2008-08-18

loup, this is a great idea, but like everyone is saying if you don't make it more elaborate then what is the point! Also your pricing is a bit to low: Web cam 8$ Microphone 4$ speakers 5$ LED light 1$ sensitive light 2$ Small LCD screen 20$ styrofoam head 6 $ for a total of:46$! if you have all of the parts laying around that is fine but most of us don't! So like I said, great idea but it is never going to be featured unless you make it WAY more elaborate!

volquete made it! (author)volquete2008-11-08

that is true, but thats still pretty cheap.

JediCodeWarrior made it! (author)JediCodeWarrior2008-08-22

Agreed. But it's still pretty cool!

SuperTails made it! (author)2008-10-16

Sounds like a great device to give a blind men. I guess anyone could use it really but when your blind you could use all the help you can get, though I wonder if their ever going to make a computer where it converts letters to braille and the screen becomes bumpy to show you the words. That would truly but a great day in history but what would go into making something like that.

codongolev made it! (author)2008-09-02

try ebay if you haven't already.

Azurial made it! (author)2008-08-13

Can You Post The Link Of The AI System You Used Plus Great Instuctable

Dms12444 made it! (author)2008-05-26

kind of creepy but very cool
ps:if you really wanted to make a good computer AI wouldn't you make it so it wouldn't ask you to dump someone or hang up on someone.

Another ps:Also If you still want to build a robot here are some instructables links

thats it. Again very, very good job AI is definitely better than what ive seen before.

karrill29 made it! (author)2008-03-28

This is probably the one of the best projects that I have seen yet but I must agree that the instructions are quite viag. I would really like to do this but I would like to get detailed instruction on where you got all of the components,soldering instructions,software for the voice recognition, and even name brands of the components

pyroboy212 made it! (author)2008-03-02

thats sick!! if you used this cube instead of a head you could be like.... super alien dude. just imagine if you made that wireless...


more details

rosswaycaster made it! (author)2008-02-10

loup226 I really want to do this PLEASE give more details!! I BEGG YOU! PLEASE!!!

bobby50371 made it! (author)2008-01-21

Yeah no doubt, What LCD Model#, What software names were used, what drivers? This I agree, is waste of my time, and I think future instructables should be filtered for content, or lack there of. If I'm a little off on this please let me know.

ghostguard7 made it! (author)ghostguard72008-01-22

Totally agree. Filters for content and a simple spell/grammar - check. It's really getting old reading words like "recognizer". How about "Recognition" ? Tips for potential authors: Use Capital letters when appropriate, and proof-read! These silly childish errors ensure that I will not be wasting my time and money, however cool the project looks.

kylechu made it! (author)2008-01-12

that's kinda really creepy

chaitanyamuppala made it! (author)2008-01-03
