Still a work in progress but has steadily gotten better since I've had it. I like what they're doing but its a really big task so its still not on par with the big commercial voice assistants.

If you set your expectations realistically it is still a cool and useful device. I also love that they created an image for diying your own with a pi.

@kelbot what is the device on the left of the notebook (in the back). looks like a PDA

@lvl
That is a PocketCHIP. The company sadly is no more. You can still buy them though. Someone bought all the remaining stock when they went under and is reselling it. shop.pocketchip.co/collections

@kelbot
Hi What OS is on your pocket chip? I thought it was left for dead and abandon? Would love to give som love to my chip ♥️😊

@coffe
The stock CHIP server image. I use it without X. There are a couple config changes you can make to no longer point at NTCs defunct servers. Updates from Debian still work.

@kelbot
♥️ Nice! will take a look through the "googles" later this evening and see if i can get my chip up and running. ❤️

@coffe
Let me know if you have trouble finding the right links. I tooted them a while back so I could search my toots and find it.

@coffe
I've also made a custom interface with tmux and pdmenu to make doing things a little more streamlined and require fewer keypresses.

@kelbot
that sounds frickin awesome. Didn't you say something about starting a blog? This should be your first blog posts: how to be awesome with your pocket chip! ❤️🤖

@kelbot
See you made some of the same choices I've made with the NUC and MX mouse.. would have loveed to have a Mycroft though. ;)

@kelbot
Yeah, I know.. but has it taken awhile. Long since I heard it was coming. My issue have been to afford it though. Plenty of other stuff to pay. ;)

@kelbot Ah, lucky you, you got a pocketCHIP before they went bankrupt! :) What are the keys like to use?

@mgr They uh...get the job done. Not pleasant to type extensively on but good enough for short commands and navigation.

@kelbot
Oh, okay. That actually makes me a little less sad :)
