Maybe you would like to hear tiger roar, cat meow, the sound of winds and trees, or maybe you like to hear monsters laugh, the sound of dragon breathing fire, we have many. Just say: Alexa, ask sound box or Alexa ask sound box to play the sound of bird chirping.
What it does
Bring the sound of the nature and the outside world (fantasy or real) to your bedroom
How I built it
Collect a variety of sounds. Set it up with Alexa skill.
Challenges I ran into
Sometimes Alexa still has a hearing problem. Need to make sure instructions are as unambiguous as possible
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Love the sound of hunted house.
What I learned
The new ways that Alexa skill makes small, long pauses are awesome. Also alexa skill has greatly expanded its vocabulary (the built in custom slots).
What's next for Sound Box
Add movie sound clips, maybe?
