    Nice...all features we can add to our existing Robo with the use of rPi. Coming soon! I just don't know if I will ever allow Alexa into my home. She is one nosy little spy. :)

    " ... She is one nosy little spy"

    That's true. No reason for Big Brother to bug our homes and gather info - we do it willingly through Social Media & devices like the Echo. You can always print your own "Cone of Silence"

    They created an Alexa skill. It is not hugely difficult and it is on our list as soon as we get our printers relocated into our (soon to be built) workshop. I'll be happy to share doing it. If I can talk my son into starting on it before I have time I might can get you an answer sooner. https://developer.amazon.com/alexa-skills-kit/tutorials/fact-skill-1

    You would still need to activate the skill on the Alexa/Echo device. They may already have it out there...

    I've been pulling together the research for this one. So far, I have the extra Pi, the microphone, the microSD card, power cable... I don't have the speakers yet but I'm trying to use a dual-input with the master Pi that's already in the printer so that I can play with the OctoPrint sound plugin. For the DIY Alexa I'll be replacing the existing voices with the Paul Bettany JARVIS character from Iron Man and changing the trigger command to be "jarvis" rather than "alexis".

    Create an Alexa with a Raspberry Pi

    I'll do a write-up later when I get this going. Things got hectic when I had a server crash at work last Friday.

    I may just have the remote "Alexis" Pi send the sounds over to the printer's Raspi via a mechanism like...

    Code:
    ssh pi@my-c2.local 'aplay ~/jarvis/sounds/response04.mp3'
    The speaker(s) then would be plugged into the Raspberry Pi 3's stereo headphone jack inside the printer which will allow me to use a cheaper Raspberry Pi Zero W for the remote with just the USB-based microphone and a battery.

    I need to try the Echo thing, I will admit I have too many of those. Mainly because Cortana just won't listen... Speaking of lawns, we have a robot for that! Been working great for two years, even mows the neighbors yard now. I should 3D print a bumper sticker for it.....

    Anyone still have this working, or ever get it working? I can't find the "My Robo" skill on Alexa . . . . .

    It is still on my "to-do" list for once we get everything relocated (along with more cursing at the delta printer once we try to get it back going I am sure). Worst case we will write a custom skill for it and publish it.
