We wanted to do something with voice control, and decided to try controlling an arcade game with it. We saw that other people online had done so using a program called VoiceBot, but we wanted to make our own. We used an API called SpeechRecognition for Python. We have yet to beat level 1-1.
This thing is 72 lines of code.
= 8 lines /hr
We also spent 2 hours setting up version control, and the next 3 hours making an idea that we threw away. Lessons learned: don't be too ambitious
