Working on getting a good hardware solution for MMM-AssistantMK2
So after I gave up on using the Google AIY kit, I’ve ordered a usb soundcard, speakers and an amplifier for the mirror, and I’ve gotten them mounted.
I’ve searched banggood for a proper microphone to connect to the soundcard, but I’m having some problems in finding a good solution for it, do you have any recommandations?
@sdetweil Ok, so any cheap lavalier microphone, would be great to have something that was mounted in the frame, I know, details, details, details, but as I’m already on the edge of waf, it needs to be well designed

If you are of ok with basic soldering, you can follow this steps.
The cost of such very sensitive mic will be 2$.
I have made this mic myself and its sensitivity is very high.
Mic is located behind the glass and sensitivity level set to 5%.
With this set-up, I can speak normally 1.5-2.5 meters in front of the glass and mic+Raspberry recognizes what I am saying well.
@Serge Very interesting, I even have the 4466 mic here

I’m using the Sony PS3 eye. As there are 4 microphones inside the webcam, it allows me to speak to the assistant at more than 4 meters in my living room despite the ambient sounds (TV, music …)
