Topic: Two MIT engineers turn Chumby/NeTV into a Personal Assistant!
We built an always-on personal assistant for your TV (built on NeTV!). A visual assistant like this (rather than audio only) can be proactive and offer help/suggestions without you having to remember what you can ask (unlike Echo). Using some basic BLE techniques, we can also identify when you're nearby and customize the experience to you.
As you can see, we make it always-on using NeTV's overlay so you never have to be on a particular input to use it.
Interested to hear your thoughts and happy to answer any questions.
PS we're running a super small alpha program if you're interested (there's a fee for the parts and assembly) but it gets you two iterations of our units so you can try it out in your own home.
Chumby community is of course welcome (and bunnie recommended you all himself!)
