Check Out This Real Life Jarvis From Iron Man

by Dan Koelsch


The Boston Globe has a story about a 27 year old tech support worker named Chad Barraford who created a “digital life assistant”. What’s interesting about the story is that the assistant is a computer program that communicates with Chad and is integrated with his home, similar to the JARVIS (Just a Rather Very Intelligent System) program in Iron Man. In fact, that’s where Chad got the idea for what he calls “Project Jarvis”. Check out a video of Jarvis in action after the jump.




The program can’t do everything Jarvis does in Iron Man, but it’s not too far off. Here’s how Chad describes the system on his Project Jarvis blog:

Project Jarvis is a digital life assistant (DLA). He uses mainly human communications means such as Twitter, instant message, and voice to create a two way connection between me and my apartment, controlling lights and appliances, notify me of breaking news, Facebook notifications, personal finances, package tracking, netflix, bittorrenting, assist in cooking, check stock quotes, weather, and more.



Not bad for a software running on a Mac Mini. You can read more about Project Jarvis at Boston.com or at Chad’s Project Jarvis blog, where he also has more videos of Jarvis at work.
