I keep finding great mods for the MagPi Raspberry Pi Google AIY Projects box so I thought I’d start listing them all in one place (mainly for me, because I keep forgetting where I’ve seen things!)
Credit to all the makers who’ve come up with these mods!
Disclaimer: listing a mod on here doesn’t mean I’ve tried and tested it, please contact the maker of the mod if you have any issues. (Unless it’s one of mine, then contact me).
Makers, if you want me to add your project, or I’ve got the details / link wrong let me know, either comment on this post, email me or contact me on twitter.
UPDATE – NEW VERSION!
There has been a big update to the AIY Voice kit code which is now included on the SD card image. On the Github repo the original version is the master branch and the new version is the voicekit branch.
Unfortunately this means that the old mods won’t work with the new version so I am going to attempt to show which version each mod will work with, please let me know if Iv’e got any of them wrong.
If you are using the old version I’ve tagged mods that work with that as master, and ones that work with the new version (included in the sd card image starting with aiyprojects-2017-09-11) are tagged with voicekit.
I’ve written a quick guide to writing mods for the new version here.
