Hobbyists, students, developers and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts looking to create a home assistant may be interested in a new open source program which runs on a Raspberry Pi and communicates with all your devices providing a virtual assistant to help you stay up-to-date on calendar events and help you in your everyday life. Gladys is now available to download for free and install on your Raspberry Pi, check out the video below to learn more and see Gladys in action.
Gladys does the basic day-to-day life maintenance tasks that I need handled in order to exist without my mum there to remind me to wake up in time for work. And, as you can see from the video above, it also plays some mean George Michael. Gladys can help run your day from start to finish, taking into consideration road conditions and travel time to ensure you’re never late, regardless of external influences. It takes you 30 minutes to get ready and another 30 minutes to drive to work for 9.00? OK, but today there’s a queue on the motorway, and now your drive time is looking to be closer to an hour. Thankfully, Gladys has woken you up a half hour earlier, so you’re still on time. Isn’t that nice of her? And while you’re showering and mourning those precious stolen minutes of sleep, she’s opening the blinds and brewing coffee for you. Thanks, mum!
