Well shiv'r me timb'rs! You land-lovers had better teach me some of your vocal blubbering or I'll send you to Davy Jones' Locker!
But seriously, yes Q42 has an animatronic parrot that they brought to life, so that it can entertain their lunches and social gatherings. They provided it with a mic and speakers, and programmed voice capabilities on it. The audio that it samples gets sent to a firebase action, which replies by way of spoken MP3 and movement defined in JSON format. So get your hands dirty and teach this parrot some manners!
Make sure to bring your laptop that runs a recent version of NodeJS with Firebase Tools installed (npm install - g firebase-tools) and a charger!
