Google Turns Raspberry Pi Smart!

Raspberry Pi is about to get really smart, they have teamed up with Google to bring voice integration to their product, with a very smart combination of hardware and software. So smart in fact this little DIY kit brings all the fancy powers that the Google Home has to the Raspberry Pi 3.

However…..the pack contains a Voice HAT (Hardware Accessory on Top, a HAT is any piece of physical hardware that is added to the Pi motherboard) board with a speaker and a microphone, giving Pi owners everything they need to add-in voice integration.

The only way to get the HAT board is to buy the latest issue of the company’s official magazine The MagPi, where it comes as a freebie.


A Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized computer originally designed for education, inspired by the 1981 BBC Micro. … The Raspberry Pi is slower than a modern laptop or desktop but is still a complete Linux computer and can provide all the expected abilities that implies, at a low-power consumption level.
