Last year Google teamed up with the Raspberry Pi Foundation to release the Google AIY Voice Kit and this year it is expanding on AIY with a refreshed voice kit that uses a Raspberry Pi Zero W in place of the Raspberry Pi 3 used last year. That is not all that exciting but what is exciting is they are also releasing the Google AIY Vision Kit to build your own camera that is said to be able to recognize people, emotions and objects through neural networks.
In addition to the new kits Google is also releasing an Android App to make setting up AIY projects a bit easier.
I am excited to get my hands on these new kits and start doing some projects. For now, the new AIY Kits appear to only be available at Target.
Anyone else excited for new AIY Kits?
I am passionate about the IoT and connected devices. Using connectivity to automate our lives will empower civilization to achieve greatness.
