This is a fantastic project we've been requested by some people who want to spend a special gift to a former coworker.
The name of this lucky guy is "Jean-Philippe" that's the reason for the name "JP-Clock".
JP is a french guy living in Germany and he has a wonderful french accent. The only drawback when he talks is, that he repeats the word "ok" several times in every sentence.
So what the people were requesting was a simple counter that listens to him and count the word "ok".
A very nice idea and so we decided to create a prototype and see if it's doable.
We thought when we already have a box with a display, we can use it for more than just counting words.
So this was the featurelist for the "JP-Clock":
- Word Counter (overall, words-per-day, word-per-day-highscore)
- Alarm-Clock with DCF77-Time receiver
- Control power outlets by voice
- USB-Connection, for controlling a computer by voice or for firmware upgrades
So this box also can be usefull at home.
Here are some pics:
A very first draft.
All ordered parts arrived.
All parts assembled, housing is ready
Handmade, looks crappy - but works wonderfull - hey it's a prototype
The Prototype working.
Currently we are writing the firmware and do testing and bugfixing.
Then we will design a PCB and make a kit available for hobbyists.
X4U - Quality made in Germany
You have the idea - we will build it
