Proyecto #1 ESP8266 – Micrófono Espía, Audio Streaming por UDP

El proyecto consiste en un pequeño preamplificador de micrófono electret, que alimenta la entrada analógica de un NodeMCU (ESP8266). El ESP8266 convierte ese audio en paquetes UDP que luego son enviados por la red, por último, un scritp de Python se encarga de tomar esos datagramas UDP y reproducir el sonido. En resumen, es una pequeña aplicación de VOIP (voz sobre ip) usando un ESP8266.

Omate Yumi – Robot

Building the Omate Yumi Robot: a One Year Journey

Timeline From Design to Engineering on how Omate has designed its very first robot in a year from October 2015 to November 2016.

We have spent over a year from design to engineering in order to give birth to Yumi. It required deep Android software customization to combine high-end audio and state-of-the-art AI into its complex mechanical design.

Meet Yumi, the World’s First Home Robot powered by Android and Amazon Alexa Artificial Intelligence. Yumi can hold a conversation with anyone in the family, kids and adults alike. Yumi has been built on AI from the ground up; it is an incredibly smart and cute robot, a personal assistant, a music hub and a smart-home control point all in one.

Here is the Yumi design story (from Y1 to Y23 iteration) from the first sketch to the mockup and plastic parts tooling by RP Prototype to the integration of Amazon Alexa Artificial Intelligence into the User Interface.

Campaign will be live on November 15 on Indiegogo:

At Omate, we build real stuffs and we deliver (sometimes a bit late) but we ship 🙂

At your service!
Yumi lets anyone in the family kids or adults have a conversation with it.

“We built the Alexa Voice Service so companies like Omate could bring their customers truly magical voice-experiences,” said Aaron Brown, Director of Amazon Alexa.

Smart Assistant:
Interact in a hands-free way, simply using your voice.
Ask Yumi what you want to know: weather forecast, news report, traffic info, …
Enjoy Music and Entertainment by asking Yumi to play a song or a playlist directly from your favorite cloud services: Spotify / Pandora / TuneIn / Amazon Music…
Connect Yumi to your smart home networking systems
Securely check your home activity with the front camera of Yumi via the remote control app
And much more with over 3,000 Amazon Alexa skills apps!
