Imagine a future when you can tell your coffee machine to make coffee with the sound of your voice or tell the lights to switch on in any room of your house just by talking.
That kind of automation once required hundreds of dollars of investment in new gear, but Google is bringing that future to everyone.
The recent release of the tech company’s first open source hardware project is opening doors for ‘makers’ the world over looking to create their own voice assistants, just like Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri. Google’s Voice Kit comprises a natural language recognizer powered by a Raspberry Pi that can be paired with the Google Assistant to create your own personal Amazon Echo, all in the size of a small cube.
