Or alternatively, would there be something better to use than servos for this project?
Hi,Quote from: dmehling on July 09, 2012, 07:05:39 PMOr alternatively, would there be something better to use than servos for this project?Yeah, get a Samsung Galaxy tablet and switch it on.(Or even a Galaxy S2 or S3 cell phone, if you can live with a smaller screen).No messing around, just switch on and enjoy
Why exactly would that particular tablet work for my purposes?
As far as I know, voice recognition programs on tablets have limitations.
First of all, I don't think they can be completely voice controlled.
Don't they require you to push a button in order to listen for a command?
Also, they usually require Internet access since the voice control programs are cloud-based.
Any solution will have to be turned on initially and given the number of latch up problems in modern electronics, probably a "reboot" now and then.I really think that you have a way better (and smoother) solution without trying to build a VR controlled solenoid, but if you tell us the application of the finished gizmo, perhaps other solutions can be found.Is there a particular reason for using VR? Perhaps other means could be utilized.
I looked quite extensively for such a tablet with VR apps, and could not find what I was looking for
My idea was to either use a VR module for control of a robot, or to use a Linux-based single board computer with an already existing VR program.
Perhaps I replied too soon. The only example you gave me of a VR app was Vlingo which cannot be used off-line and requires the user to press a button before it will start listening.
Can you give me some examples of apps that would actually do exactly what I need? Otherwise, I will have to go back to my original plan.
