Talking box speaks in random measures

Talking box speaks in random measures


Craig continues his series of art-devices with I. M. Chip Blue, a curiously chatty box of electronics –

Here is I. M. Chip Blue, the fifth in my series of Enigma Gadgets. Like the others, it’s based on the Arudino microcontroller and uses the Quadravox QV300 speech module. The QV300 is programmed from the factory to speak 240 common technical terms including units of measure, numbers and colors. I. M. Chip Blue also contains a Memsic 2125 accelerometer. I have programmed it the device to speak nonsensical sentences based on a set of rules. The rules vary depending on the way the device is oriented.

Be sure to watch the video oh Chip’s monologue over at DryReading
