This is a 1986 Radio Shack Intercom that I’ve converted into a Google Home style device using a Raspberry Pi and the Google AIY (Artificial Intelligence Yourself) kit that came free with the MagPi magazine (issue 57).
It uses the Google Assistant to answer questions and perform actions, using IFTTT to integrate with smart home accessories and other web services. A modern assistant with a classic twist!
Very clever, but I must say that the actual intercom is quite ugly.
