WOPR Jr, or WOPR ("WHOPPER") is a bricolage installation of voice recognition, 3D speakers and LED signs and more. WOPR is inspired by designs of fictional robots and computers in classic movies like WOPR (War Games), Colossus (The Forbin Project), KITT (Knightrider), HAL 9000 (2001: A Space Odyssey), R2D2 (Star Wars), etc.

To interact with WOPR, say "WOPR", wait for the beep prompt, then issue a command. The beep prompt will prompt you for further sub commands.
