Hey i am new here.
I am reading about the mycroft project and as a echo owner i want to switch over to a better solution.
I have an old raspberry 2 B in my “too good to throw away box” and want to get started to build a MK 2 like device.
I would buy a MK2 but there is no information available, when it will be ready to buy. No updates nothing. The mycroft website links to kickstarter and there it is shown, that this is inactive and i should go to indigogo… there the MK2 is sold out completely… Long story short: i want to build my own one. Can’t wait for them to update their website or keep anything up to date.
What do i want to do?
- Control Hue Lights
- Play spotify music
- get weather information
- have a display for the clock and other information as the mk2 has
What do i have at the moment:
- Raspberry Pi 2 B
- PS3 eye Cam and Mic
- some passive small speakers (later i will include something better.)
What i plan to buy: The LCD HAT for the pi for the UI with the cute face on it or the information i asked for.
Now my question is: Is this possible? maybe i need a pi 3 b or even a pi 4 for this, but i will see if this is really necessary.
Most important is the LCD HAT. Can i have the ui like the MK2?
Thx in advance for your help,
