Over Thanksgiving break, we were sitting around when we saw a poster that said "Our coffee table has more RAM than your coffee table." We were inspired to build our very own cocoa table with a computer and a speaker system inside it.
Cocoa Table runs Debian Linux, and can "talk" via the Festival speech synthesis program. Its speech can be controlled by the "say" script both locally and remotely via ssh. Cocoa Table also plays music that can be controlled remotely through Glirnath.
