VOICEN Linear 4 Mic Array Kit

VOICEN is an open source project to build voice-enabled devices. Check this project at http://voicen.io/.

The first goal of the project is to make an open source smart speaker. With an open source smart speaker, you are free to choose which voice assistant to use. You have full control of your device to install apps and to share your data.

The first hardware of VOICEN project is a DIY smart speaker kit - VOICEN Linear 4 Mic Array Kit.
