Voice control with the Robonova-1 robot (Video)

Boomer robot
Michael Overstreet has the VRBot voice module working successfully with his latest Robonova-1 robot (see video below). He ran into some connectivity problems trying to use the module with Windows 7, but it works fine with Vista.

Michael, a well known RoboGames humanoid robot champion for the past few years, had his car broken into earlier this year, and Boomer (his original Robonova) was stolen in the process. The incident was indeed unfortunate, perhaps heartbreaking after all the work, dedication, and emotion he poured into Boomer. It will be fascinating to see what changes, and improvements, he makes to his new robot when we meet up at RoboGames in San Francisco this coming April.
