Been wanting to realize this one ever since I saw Bobzilla's talking parrot from about 5 years ago. Started to go the arduino route, but once you add in the H-bridge motor driver and audio board, it is cheaper to go RaspberryPi. Once I had the motor driving down, I was going to use vixen to sync the words to the movement, that would mean tediously formatting each track. While browsing the interwebs found the LightShowPi group that uses an algorithm to sync lights to music. By customizing the channels, I was able to get a fairly reasonable approximation of beak movement to audio. Using LightShowPi, I can easily make him say whatever phrase I want; currently he has most of the WDW POTC Barker bird phrases, some penguins of Madagascar, and a few songs. I also got him linked up to an ir remote for activation. Still needs refinement, maybe bluetooth for phone control, a randomizer for unattended use and definitely a costume or undead makeover, but he is getting there.
