I actually started watching some youtube videos on it. Seems awesome. You could use this for a motorized license plate too lol. I cant stop thinking about different ideas.

I wouldn't recommend doing it on stock halo's. What would really change?

The best Arduino for this is the Arduino Mega ADK ... The Arduino Mega will also work well but that wont have usb support.

Well, I was thinking of anything crazy,,,lol maybe just a fade in when unlocked and fade out when locked mode for the Halos, or maybe add the front motorized plate to it too?? so when you lock the doors, the license plate pops up, and when unlocked, it hides!

Code is uploaded to github so you guys can check it out... I think you can request access through the webpage...

I still havent had a chance to make it IDE generic... If you use IntelliJ (Like I do now) We need to convert to IntelliJ project from Eclipse.... Or just use Eclipse...

Came up with another one. Motorized exhaust cutouts! It would be awesome to say "Veronica, GO WILD!"

ummmm i wanna just talk to her, nothing fancy, and i guess she has all these pre-programmed responses audible on the outside or inside. Howd i do that? guessing its just a single speaker under the hood for the outside vocals and bluetooth on the inside speakers. Maybe get a mic on the outside too?

It'd be cooler if you had multiple different voices that responded to different commands.
Saying roll out gives you a autobot transform noise
Saying are bad girl stuff and such gives you Shak1ra
Then implementing Morgan Freeman's voice and Cortana (Halo) would be amazing...

HAHA I love it. I am actually in the process of updating where and how the voice response works. I will incorporate movie and show quotes like transformers and knight rider!

BudMC Recommended a cool sound shield which will make this a pretty simple task.

yeh but I'd rather use two sets of speakers. One inside the car and one outside so the setup wont interfere with the car speakers.

Yeah here's a great sound shield if anyone is looking for one. I haven't had any problems with mine yet. I used this in conjunction with an app called Speak It. It's a text to voice app that allows you to Tyler your text, listen to it, save/download it as an AIFF file (I believe). Then all you have to do is convert it to a WAV file and your set. The only down side I have found is that it only plays 8 bit mono sound bits. But that may be from the type of converter I am using. I will try another WAV file that has not been converted and see if that works. There is also another file format that it will play that I haven't messed around (which may be really good since the example song is in this format and sounds really good IMO). Btw the app I use has many different accents that you can choose from to record in including American, British, and many others. I will update you guys as I find out more about this shield.

Who wouldn't? Well maybe Morgan Freeman, but he can use James Jones' voice instead.

Couldn't you have it so it plays a MP3 file for each voice input you give? I'm not a tech wizz, but I'm helping my buddy modify to Xbox Kinect senor to do voice and motion commands to certain people's faces and it's a pain.

But some to use would be Optimus Prime saying Roll Out
The transforming sound
Christian Bale saying "I am the BATMAN!" in the batman voice

Input: I need you buddy
Output: Right away Sir

Also here's something you could use (might want to find better quality though)
Nanananana Batman

I'm working on right now getting the "bumblebee voice" nd when I say bumblebee voice I mean having a bunch of different movie quotes stitched together to make a complete and coherent sentence just like in the movie. Found a really cool website to download movie quotes in WAV file format. Many many movies on there but I'd have to look up the website again tho. Will post it later if anyone is interested in that route.
