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.
