Remember the Arduino-compatible Verbalizer development board for Google Voice Search that we covered recently? Michael Lipton from Breakfast NY has given us four Verbalizer boards to give away to lucky readers.

Out of the box, the Verbalizer connects wirelessly to your computer via Bluetooth and when triggered, opens google.com in a new tab in Chrome and activates Voice Search. An audio notification is played signaling google is ready for your query, which is spoken into the on-board mic. The board is Arduino compatible and we left some I/O pins open, so it’s easy for anyone to jump in and create something nutty with it.

(At the moment, the desktop companion app for the Verbalizer requires Mac OS X 10.6, but you can find the source code for it on Github if you want to try porting it to other platforms.)

To be eligible for this drawing, all you have to do is post a comment telling us why you want a Verbalizer and what project you want to make with it. Eligible entries will end at 11:59 PST, Saturday July 16, 2011. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, July 19 in the comments below. Good luck!

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.
