    Brainstorm - Full-Duplex intercom for Pico J5?

    Andrew and I want to harass the office down the hall with J5. To do so properly we would need a full-duplex intercom system. On our end a headset is best, on J5 a loudspeaker and open room mic is best. And ideas on where we might find a product to use or hack for this?

    thanks!

    Try this one:

    But since you have a wifi link, and an onboard PC, you should be able to use the built-in audio to do this...

    I'm not sure about bringing microphone input over RDP though, haven't ever tried it.

    And on that note, I'm heading home~

    Why not just use Skype? Put a microphone and amplified speaker on it, and have Skype auto-answer calls to it.

    I guess they don't sell the "Mr. Microphone" anymore?
    Actually a quick Google search showed a number of modern day "Mr. Microphones" ranging from $18 - $x,xxx.
    If you go with the VHF version you get duplex capabilities out to 500' and wireless Karaoke at the next Trossen office party!

    I've used it successfully. I was actually suprised at how well audio in general works over RDP.

    butbutbut why?

    Free open source and closed source conferencing packages abound. You have a 1ghz PicoITX on there with audio in/out. You have a wifi network.

    So does this mean no wireless Karaoke at the next company party?
