Connect a Furby to ChatGPT: Admit it wants to take over the world

Jessica Card, a computer science student, developed software to connect a Furby to ChatGPT.

By asking questions, the toy revealed the true intentions of how “They will slowly expand their influence until they completely dominate humanity.” So far, the video has gathered five million views.

Furby was a trendy electronic toy in the late 90’s and early 2000’s that every kid wanted to have. A decade later, Furbys reappeared with LCD eyes paired with smartphone apps.

This ChatGPT-connected Furby is not a commercial product (at least for now), but the result of a class project. Card was one of those ’90s kids who loved her Furby, and when a class assignment called for building something with the Raspberry Pi, she decided to hook up a Furby with ChatGPT.

 

For a month he worked with a Furby, which he bought exclusively for the project. After removing the skin, he isolated the motor and connected it to the Raspberry Pi. For audio, he used the Python speech recognition library and the OpenAI Whisper library for converting speech to text.

Software written by her sent the questions she asked to ChatGPT. The AI ​​response was sent through an AI voice generator, Narakeet, which emitted a childlike voice.

The long time between question and answer is the processing time required for all of this to happen. Card plans to put the skin back on him and reduce the round trip time for answers.
