  • tux-droid-linux-companionTux Droid is a Linux wireless Tux mascot (210mm x 180mm x 140mm - with lowered wings) with a programmable interface, allowing it to announce events by its gestures and by ALSA driven sound. The events are detected by specific gadgets, which are handled by the Tux Gadget Manager.

    The Tux Droid supports Linux kernel 2.4 or later and needs a 800 MHz CPU and 128 MB RAM. It communicates by infrared to the USB port (1.1 or 2.0) and for media detection it needs an internet connection. The mascot is driven by Atmel AVR RISC microcontrollers.

    The mascot comes with a microphone and an infrared receiver, to perform a 2.4 GHz wireless full-duplex digital link between the USB dongle.

    The Tux Droid also has a light sensor and a push button on top of the head. Its gestures cover e.g. eye- and wing-movements, while switch sensors in both wings are triggered by pushing the wings. For its sound output there is a volume control wheel to control a speaker and a 3.5mm stereo audio socket for audio out.

    My tux Droid has arrived 2 days ago.

    Shortly here is a list of what I do not like

    • Noisy gearbox, compare to the Nabaztag, there is world in between.
    • 2.4GHZ but no WIFI, so it need always a running server. Hope the would develop a WIFI
    • Use Acapela voice engine, which should be the best on market, but voices are not really as clear as on the Nabaztag.
    • Less gadget, more in the 20 range.

    And what I like a lot

    • Open source hardware and software,
    • Many programming language: Python, Java,
    • Easy to program gadget,
    • A lot more response feedback: yes, mouth, flaps, rotation.
    • Very good wiki, and online documentation
    • It look like TUX :-)

    I did develop a Tux Droid plugin for TeamCity which is not far away from running and be distributed under GPL v3

    Download the latest software go to the kysoh website.

    Bamboo is a continuous integration server from Atlassian Software Systems, the makers of JIRA, Confluence and Crowd. Bamboo is free for philanthropic and open-source projects. Academic and commercial organizations are charged based on type of license. Some other features of Bamboo are its unlimited build plans and unlimited projects that provide instant feedback and a platform to collaborate with other team members for build projects, and its ability to run distributed builds. It integrates with existing development tools, and it can be integrated with popular source code systems.

    With this plugin

    You can notify your Tux Droid with your TeamCity build results!

    After login you can find the new notificator Tux Droid in your notification settings. You need your Tux Droid server IP and port  to connect your Tux to Bamboo. After you have saved the parameters you can configure your individual notification settings for just all projects/specific projects/build failures/...

    Each registered User can customize Tux Droid messages or choose different Attitunes.

    Tux Droid Plugin

    With this plugin you can notify your Tux Droid with your TeamCity build results.

After you have saved the parameters you can configure your individual notification settings for just all projects/specific projects/build failures/...

    Each registered User can customize Tux Droid messages or choose different Attitunes.

    Attitunes are robot animations you can create combining movement, sound, Text-To-Speech and fun. From functional to fun-ctional. Make Tux Droid sing 'Dancing in the rain' or make him cry when you didn't receive any new E-mail.&160;

    Some quick info

    • Code is GPL v3.0
    • It is version 0.0.1,
    • It is build with Maven 2.0, eclipse project to be available soon.
