Here’s another one for the “Why? Because I Can” collection: Add an embedded Linux platform to a Big Mouth Billy Bass.
By adding this functionality to the bass, in addition to networking protocols, the bass will be transformed into an H.323 compliant video teleconferencing host. It will be possible to use Microsoft NetMeeting or CUSeeMe to connect to your bass at home and talk with your loved ones!
Apparently the idea is to make it so that the fish lip-syncs to the remote user’s voice, so that your local avatar is effectively the fish.
