What it does
There's nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.
How it works
Hardware: Raspberry Pi, Arduino Uno, RGB LEDs (2), USB Power Supply Software:
- Speech recognition with Google Speech Recognition API
- Text-to-speech server with Apple Dictation Services
- Audio streaming from Mac-->RasPi over Wi-Fi
- Remote control of RasPi with UDP
- Chat bot built with NLTK
- LED control with Arduino
Our power supply wasn't enough to power the motor as well -- which we used to move the tip of the hat side-to-side and make it more lifelike
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The hat pretty much works without a single wire coming out of it!
