DIY Your Own Voice Controlled Lights

Voice controlled lights are one of those futuristic ideas that never really caught on for mass consumption, but if you want to make your own, DIYer Mike Pieters shows off how to do it.

All you need is an Arduino, a SimpleVR voice recognition shield, and something to control the voltage. Drop Pieters' code on both of the microcontrollers, and you'll have a cool, retro-future voice controlled lighting system. Check out the YouTube video above for a full guide, and grab the Arduino code and the SimpleVR code to get started.

    Not a do it yourself solution, but I plan to use a Ubi and Lifx bulbs for the same result.
