Title: Wireless talking parrot
Post by: lombrano on Feb 05, 2015, 05:11 pm
Hello everybody,

I'm new in the forum and in the magic world of arduino.

I'm planning to create a wireless talking parrot which I could control from the computer, ex using a web page. The parrot should be able to say 50-100 sentences, and I would like to be able to control which sentence the parrot should say using a control page on the computer.

As you surely image I need some directions for the components to use.

What I was thinking of was an arduino, an mp3 player attached to it with a SD/Mini-SD reader and an ethernet shield of some form.

My idea was to save all sentences in the SD card as MP3 or WAV files, and create a server on the ethernet shield which receives the command of which sentence to play.

As you imagine dimension is a problem, my toy parrot is not big and everything should be no more than 6cm x 4cm x 4cm.

Do you think this is the correct way to accomplish the project or you can suggest something different ? Have you got any component to suggest ?

Thanks in advance for all your help

Regards

Antonio

Yes.
As well as an MP3 player look at the Adafruit wave shield.

This is my project only with buttons to activate a translation:-

Hello Mike,

thanks for your answer. Yes, I took a look at the Adafruit wave shield. How big is it ?

Your project is very nice !

Same size as a Uno.
