Hard Ware Required to Build
Hi, can anyone list the specific hardware (excluding the repo) required to build this completely.
Looked all over yet have not so far found.
A raspberry 2 or 3 (1 and zero work in servermode only) with a proper power source and a SD/micro SD card and a monitor is the minimum hardware.
You need to provide internet, either by wired connection (onboard) or wireless (pi 3 has onboard wlan, all others need a wlan dongle). In addition mouse and keyboard are of value.
If you want extra features you need a PIR sensor or a webcam or an usb microphone or a temperature/humidity sensor, …
Hi, thanks Yawns4, tell me. does the screen need to be Touch Screen? Does it function with a touch screen if not by dripping the need for the keyboard/mouse.
Also is it/can it be voice driven?
Touch screen can work but not with an acrylic mirror. There is a voice command module too
Thanks Slickric, how reliable is the voice command if you know?
I take it if its reliable it can replace the need to touch screen?
Hmm can we extend on this to cams, recorder etc sensors etc (what are people using ?)
