Arduino meets Google Voice with the Verbalizer
NYC-based interactive advertising agency and research lab Breakfast NY, in collaboration with Zach Eveland, just released The Verbalizer, an open source board based on Arduino, to use with Google Voice’s search for desktop.
The Verbalizer connects wirelessly to a personal computer via Bluetooth. When you trigger it, it opens google.com in a new tab and activates Voice Search. An audio notification is played, signaling when google is ready for your queryYou speak into the mic, and the query starts. Breakfast released all the plans and firmware appropriately, and left some I/O pins open for those who want to play with it.
Pretty neat, and nice to see folks inching toward consumer devices with Arduino inside.
