This video is all about the installation of Picroft on Raspberry Pi. Picroft is the OS based on Rasbian Lite and Mycroft installed on top of it. Mycroft is a digital voice assistant written mostly in Python. As Mycroft is opensource, this opens up a lot of potentials to add features. As pi does not come with any sort of audio input, I have used a Respeaker 2-MIC HAT from Seeedstudio. This works pretty fine. I have also added some python scripts to use the 3 RGB LEDs available on the HAT, to depict some visual feedback by interacting with the MessageBUS.
