We got inspiration from Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alex

What it does

The user is able to talk with the virtual assistant and based on certain words or phrases the user uses, then Blue or Purple (the virtual assistants) will talk back to you.

How we built it

We built Blue and Purple on Python and used speech recognition, macOS speech, web browser, PyAudio, and a lot more imports to make this work.

Challenges we ran into

There was several bugs we had to fix (with the help of mentors). It seemed like every time we cleared one error up, two more appeared.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're all proud that we were able to clear up all errors in the end, and waking up to work on this in the morning

What we learned

We learned that a lot of programming involves just googling your questions and searching on stackoverflow. We didn't expect to spend so much time on pasting our errors into google. Also, we learned not to use PyAudio

What's next for B.P: The Virtual Assistants

We hope to add more personalities to B.P to make the interaction more enjoyable and memorable. Another thing we hope to improve is to have B.P be able to respond to more commands
