Reed has shared a longer explainer of how his Zoombot works over on redpepper’s website, but it started with a handful of selfie screenshots he snapped in Quicktime of himself sitting at his desk, with various head poses and states of speech, while staring at his computer’s webcam. These were then used as source material for a custom webapp Reed created that relies on an open-source tool called Artyom.js that can trigger automated synthesized responses using voice recognition.
