TL;DR: Craft your own Alexa rival with the Spencer DIY Voice Assistant Kit. As of March 3, you’ll pay $119.95.
With this coding kit, which is ideal for ages 11 and up, you can spend quality time with your kiddos creating Spencer, the DIY voice assistant.
You’ll follow step-by-step instructions to build Spencer. Don’t worry, no prior coding or electronics knowledge is necessary. Along the way, you’ll learn about coding a microcomputer in C, C++, and CircuitBlocks (similar to Scratch), artificial intelligence, voice recognition, sound processing, soldering, and more.
Once he’s up and running, Spencer can tell you the weather forecast, sing a song, set alarms and reminders, show animations and scrolling text with flashy LEDs, find news online, and even tell jokes. He has a funny personality and makes corny pop culture references your kids will love. You can code new functions as well, so that Spencer can respond to your voice when you say certain sentences and words.
Here’s a sneak peek at what he can do:
