Things used in this project

Hardware components:
Rotary Phone
Any old standard rotary phone will do. Try to stick with those that have a decent amount of space inside for parts. You could use a push-button phone too, but I think the rotary phones look more retro.
Gus 1719
C.H.I.P. Approved 3.7 V LiPo Battery
Adafruit industries ada592 image 75px
USB-A to Micro-USB Cable
If you leave this trailing out of the phone, then you can charge the CHIP and get a serial console for debugging.
USB audio adapter
The particular model doesn't matter so long as linux has drivers for it.
Software apps and online services:
This is the core piece of software for the voice response system. It's designed for the Raspberry Pi, but you can make it work with the CHIP.
This is the speech-to-text (STT) engine I used. There are others supoorted by Jasper.
Pico TTS
Again, there are MANY text-to-speech (TTS) engines that will work with Jasper. This is the one I chose.
Hand tools and fabrication machines:
Adafruit Diagonal Cutters
