The ability to play sound on a robotic platform provides an interesting dimension of interactivity. Looky here:
The addition of sound to a robot provides a wide variety of possibilities to expand the level of interactivity of the device. Fortunately this is easy to add to the JetsonBot. The design decision here is to add USB powered speakers to the JetsonBot platform. There are a wide variety of these types of speakers available on the market, several of which are both compact in size and inexpensive. In the video, GOgroove CRS Compact USB Powered Computer Speakers
The speakers were mounted using 3M Dual Lock tape

The next step? Software to play sounds using the ROS sound_play node.
