Mandy - the periodic table you can talk to
Mandy is an interactive periodic table that takes voice commands to display various trends in the elements. A (teaser) trailer can be found here.
Mandy can be broken down into three components:
- Simplified Command and Control (SCAC) a minimalist speech recognition package that I've designed which uses pocketsphinx
- An Arduino which accepts serial commands to light RGB LEDs (aka Neopixels
- Wolfram Mathematica scripts for crunching color codes, organizing the periodic-table data and communicating between SCAC and the Arduino, which relies on python-mathlink
scac - Simplified command and control
to be written
PTPixels - Wolfram code for pixel data and communication
to be written
python-mathlink - Communication between python and Mathematica
Cloned from here with the following changes:
sudo apt-get install python-dev libuuid-dev
- Using version 11.0 of Mathematica
- Still need to copy the libML32i3.so library to /usr/local/lib
- arduino has the arduino sketch(es) needed to control the neopixels.
- assets are items used by SCAC for speech recognition and language model generation
- base contains core files used by SCAC, such as the text-to-speech engine, which in Mandy's case is the LCD display.
- design holds files relevant to the physical structure (OpenSCAD scripts, graphics and Mathematica code).
- library stores the functions to be run when a speech command is recognized.
- systemd contains copies of Unit files used to make Mandy, speech recognition and some power switches work as services.
- wl contains wolfram scripts and python mathlink code.
