Just a quick update...  They say a picture is worth one thousand words, so a moving picture must be worth more, right???

 

Here is my AIY voice kit reacting to Doug's test video of his AIY voice kit.  I changed the voice on my kit to see if and what any delay may be.  I then changed the voice back and tried a couple of the commands that I had added for the challenge.

 

 

You will notice in the video, that I gave an improper command, and the Google assistant apologized for not being able to help, which wasn't actually its fault :-)

 

Next is to quickly get the servos moving so I can blog it and have Doug get his servos moving...
