This is a very cool python project which lets you build always-listening voice controlled applications, using just a Raspberry Pi, a mic and some speakers...

Looks to be very easily extended.

More like a SIRI wannabe... And "build your own" is cool for geeks and enthusiasts but until it's a packaged product people can buy on Amazon or off the shelf in retail it is just that, a blip in the radar.

When Apple incorporates Siri to Apple TV (or like Amazon has just done with voice search on Amazon Fire TV) then it we'll have a "Siri equivalent".

That is why I posted this in the 'Gadgets, robotics, home automation, electronics' forum, it is definitely for enthusiasts and geeks and clearly not a product ready for retail.

What is does show is how this current boom of open source hardware and software is allowing the average enthusiast to create some pretty cool applications and tools, which whilst not rivalling the big players, at least gives you the opportunity to tailor something to what you need. Since trying to get SIRI to do anything other than schedule reminders and tell you the weather is almost impossible.

It may not be a SIRI replacement, but everyone knows what/who SIRI is, so my title (and their pitch) is just to highlight what this project is about.
