Some of you may recall that we had a Raspberry Pi contest here at Autodesk and announced the winners.
One of those winners was Software Architect for Solver Technology Research, Franco Costa, who wants to teach his parrot to talk. He described his project as:
If I had a Raspberry Pi, I would program it to respond to my parrot when she talks by playing back a recording of my voice saying her favorite phrases, plus some new ones I am trying to teach her. The Raspberry Pi, being a low power device, could sit near her cage during the day, keeping her company while I am away from home enjoying my day at the Autodesk Office. My parrot's name is Billy, and she is an Australian rose-breasted cockatoo, more commonly known as a “Gallah” in Australia.
Well I recently got a progress report that I thought I would share:
Team building is alive in the lab.
