Adding voice control to your DIY projects is a great way to make them more powerful, but it's not exactly an easy process. Jasper is an open source, Raspberry Pi-connected, always-on platform to add voice control to your projects pretty easily.
To get Jasper set up initially as a standalone device, you'll just need a Raspberry Pi, a microphone and a few other parts you probably already have. Out of the box, Jasper is packed with a bunch of different modules so you can check on Facebook, control Spotify, ask for knock-knock jokes and more. The fun, of course, comes from integrating Jasper into your own projects. Head over to the main Jasper page to find download links, setup instructions and everything else you need to get started.
