My PiTank was collecting dust under the table for a while and today I got some free time to bring it back to life. There were some issues with connecting over ssh, so I connected it to my desktop monitor with hdmi cable and start debugging. When I got all services up and running cat’s attention was attracted by tank and I just started to record what happened.
By the way, since last videos PiTank was upgraded and you can see now bluetooth speaker on the back of PiTank. It is connected using 3.5″ jack to Raspberry Pi analog output and can be used to reproduce different sounds or just play music. For now I just run ‘espeak’ with some text, so it reads text from console.
