Provide musical experience for those who are hard of hearing.
What it does
Plays a music stream provided by IHeartMedia API causing vibrational feedback on a glove connected to an Arduino!
How we built it
We added motors to each of the fingers on a black glove. The motors received feedback from the aux chord connected to a music source.
We build an Amazon Alexa skill that would send the music stream to a computer
Challenges we ran into
Having the Amazon Alexa skill, run the script that made the calls to the API, and play the music for us.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The glove works, the script and API requests work, the Amazon Alexa responds to our intents!
What we learned
How to run bash scripts in Python. How to set up an Amazon Alexa skill. How to feed auxiliary feed back into an Arduino.
