As soon as I saw Alexa I wanted to make her use hardware.
What it does
Created my own skill to solve an everyday problem.
How we built it
Creating our own methods of doing things when the libraries were incompatible.
Challenges we ran into
Libraries incompatible with hardware, hardware failures, and lack of time/sleep.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating a driver for a LED.
What we learned
Projects that appear easy always end up being difficult.
What's next for Hacking with Alexa
Using a Raspberry Pi to control IR devices using Alexa and ioT solutions.
