About the Product
Chatterbox is the world’s first educational build-it-yourself, program-it-yourself smart speaker kit for kids that puts privacy first. This is how the company defines CHATTERBOX. It is a smart speaker but it is made for kids so that kids can also have one personal assistant and at the same time they can learn various skills as well as can gain knowledge about AI. We all know that Artificial Intelligence commonly known as AI is in a very progressing stage and this is for sure that our future will be full of AI based gadgets and bots.
Hence, it’s not a bad idea to give little children a basic idea of AI and that is where this device comes into play. The company tells that building chatterbox is as easy as folding a paper airplane and with the help of all given graphical representations even a 7 year old kid can assemble chatterbox with very ease. The Chatterbox case is made of recyclable chipboard (really strong cardboard) and powered by Raspberry Pi. Its ears and voice are powered by company’s very own ChatterVoice HAT and microphone. The company says a wonderful line about this speaker i.e. Fold it, build it, customize it!
Kids can teach ChatterBox various skills like, listening to commands, replying to commands, performing actions according to command etc. The company says that chatterbox is designed for learning and engineered for fun. They offer a scratch based block-programming software through which kids can easily program chatterbox with different types of actions.
