Chatterbox, a smart speaker for kids to build and program themselves, quickly exceeded its initial crowdfunding goal on Kickstarter, as many people are eager to get their hands on the educational speaker kit. The privacy-focused smart speaker aims to be a step towards preparing kids for a future where a human-like artificial intelligence is ubiquitous.

To introduce to kids to AI from a young age, the smart speaker gives kids the chance to create and use their very own system by building the hardware and teaching the voice assistant. The smart speaker kit consists of recyclable chipboard components and a Raspberry Pi computer. With the educational AI assistant, kids will learn valuable programming skills, as well as how to listen and respond to commands.
