Hi! I’m Bob, I work in IT for John Deere, and am a graduate student at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. For a class project, I needed to build an IoT device, so wrote a Python program that interfaced with Google Speech-to-Text APIs to do some voice recognition. I programmed that to compare what was being said with a script, allowing actors to use the mirror to see themselves performing, while making sure they were accurate with their lines. I then used MagicMirror to handle the output, to show what the other actors would say.
It was a fun project. I still need to go back and put backing behind the mirror glass, to block any light coming through, and I want to hook up some speakers to allow the program to actually speak back to the actor, but here’s what it looks like now.
