"This project uses the power of Linux to add brains to
the Big Mouth Billy Bass. The goal is to use any Linux
device--desktop or embedded--to make the Big Mouth Billy Bass say
or act any way you want! That's right, we want to convert Big Mouth
Billy to the least expensive peripheral you'll ever buy.
This project has been submitted to the Embedded Linux Journal
application contest. ELJ, together with Tri-M Systems and
LynuxWorks, have provided an embedded PC that fits nicely into the
Billy Bass frame! Although this project was developed using BlueCat
Linux from LynuxWorks, let me again stress that this project can
run on any Linux computer, be it a desktop or PC104 embedded
computer or Linux PDA. In fact only minor software and circuit
modifications may be required to control the Bass using a PDA such
as the Agenda VR3."
