Frequently Asked Questions

When will my order ship?
All orders are typically processed and shipped within 5-7 working days.
Can I use my Raspberry Pi?
Chatterbox requires a Raspberry Pi 3B or Raspberry Pi 3B+. The Chatterbox kit does not include a Raspberry Pi, but you can add a Raspberry Pi 3B+ to your order during the checkout process to ensure you are ready to build when your order arrives. Please note that Raspberry Pi 4 is not currently supported.
What ages is Chatterbox suited for?
The recommended minimum age to use Chatterbox is 9 years old. Chatterbox's complexity grows with kids so there is no maximum recommended age.
What is Chatterbox?
Chatterbox is a build-it-yourself, program-it-yourself smart speaker that teaches kids how to program the computers of the future: the voice-based AI assistant.
Can you really teach people how to program smart speakers and voice assistants?
Absolutely! Our youngest student that is making skills is currently 6 years old and our oldest student is 70+ years old. Chatterbox offers fun and learning to people of all ages.
What is screen-free computing?
We believe that there's just too much technology these days. Too many screens, too many games and way too many distractions, without REAL, TANGIBLE learning outcomes. Once you build and teach Chatterbox, you can use it without screens and control it with your voice.
What is socially conscious technology?
Socially conscious technology is technology that is respectful of your attention and privacy. That's why we made Chatterbox to be screen-free computing, real world learning, and privacy-focused and safe for everyone. Chatterbox only listens when you press the listen button, doesn't contain any advertising and doesn't harvest personal data.
Is Chatterbox safe?
You bet! Chatterbox respects privacy by only listening when you push the "listen" button, there is no personal data harvesting like Amazon Echo or Google Assistant, and we don't share information for any purpose, PERIOD! If you have questions, chat us up at [email protected].
