Raspberry Pi

Tutorial: Magic AI Storybook with ChatGPT, Raspberry Pi and Voice Recognition with Open AI #adafruit

Episode summary

Build a magic neverending story book with a Raspberry Pi and touchscreen, and ChatGPT. We’ve added a voice recognition module using Open AI, so all you need to do is speak to the storybook and ask for the story you want, and your book will give you endless stories.

Full build tutorial: https://learn.adafruit.com/magic-storybook-with-chatgpt/overview

We live in an age of wonder. Every day, new innovations and inventions change the way we interact with the world around us and with each other. Many of the marvels we read about in the science fiction stories of our youth are suddenly, magically possible with a little clever engineering and a healthy dose of imagination.

This guide will show you how to create your own never-ending story book using a Raspberry Pi and a touch screen display. Speak your request out loud, and the book will write you an original story based on your prompt. The software uses Open AI to leverage ChatGPT, a language-based AI, to fill an endless storybook with imaginative stories.

This code includes an editable prompt file called bookprompt.txt, so you can dictate the character names, story length, writing style, or any other parameters you’d like. Your daughter will love reading stories about herself and her cat as they adventure through an endless world of imagination, in the style of Dr. Seuss!

Circuit Playground

Tutorial Intro: Chinese Dragon Puppet with Motion Reactive LED Flames and MakeCode #adafruit

Episode summary

Full tutorial: https://learn.adafruit.com/chinese-dragon-puppet-with-motion-reactive-flame-effect/overview

Make a Chinese Dragon puppet with a dramatic flame LED effect. The lights are motion-reactive so he lights up when you shake him. This project uses an Adafruit Circuit Playground Express with a built-in motion sensor and NeoPixel LED lights. The code is written in Microsoft MakeCode, an easy-to-use drag and drop code editor. (Or maybe in this case, a dragon-drop code editor.)

This is an easy beginner-level project that involves a little bit of soldering. You can download our code sample, or learn to make your own flame effects. This is a fantastic project to do with kids.
