Demo Time! Acusis and Alexa with Raspberry Pi

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, hope you had a good holiday.

Earlier we sent Acusis out to some users to try it out and see what they would do. One user, Mikael, made an Alexa-enabled system using Acusis and Raspberry Pi. Since Acusis is a far-field microphone array, you can build a room-scale voice assistant with Raspberry Pi (or other computer) yourself. This demonstration shows how easy it is to build it.

Mikael has kindly shared the code with us. We’ll send an update later that contains a wiki for code samples and other information so you can do this yourself.

TTFN,
Gladys and the rest of the Acusis team
