We love rocks, especially rocks that draw.
What it does
Listens for a voice command for what to draw on amazon alexa, and your pet rock will draw that object on a whiteboard
How we built it
We wired a Dragonboard with a sensor mezzanine to a RedBot Inventor Kit's chassis to give it wireless capabilities. We host a server on Rockie so that he will listen for Alexa commands.
Challenges we ran into
wires.wires everywhere. Ones that fall out. a computer that needs lots of AA
Accomplishments that we're proud of
making rockie MOVE. making rockie LISTEN. Turning images to routes was fun.
What we learned
we need all the hardware. Transistors are hard to come by. H-bridges are impossible
What's next for Amazon Rock
