The amazon echo is

Post by ElTaco » Fri Sep 18, 2015 12:10 am

Totally Awesome! Yes its a bit new. Not like you can have some super conversation with the thing yet. Lots of things are yet to be added. Right now I just have it in the kitchen where it can play music, set timers and more. I'm hoping to replace my VeraLite smart home controller with a Samsung Smartthings hub soon so that I can also start controlling the house.

Or you can tell the NSA and it's backdoored hardware partners to fuck the fuck off and instead support a superior open-source project...

Mycroft

Meet Mycroft, The Open Source Alternative To Amazon Echo



...and then install Ubuntu Snappy Core on it.

I don't know...I don't have one.

But if you're looking to use it as a front-end for a media player...

"Mycroft, play some sweet LTS TRD 2 guitar licks"


...you can probably connect Bluetooth speakers, or use a sound bar with a Bluetooth or digital audio connection.

It doesn't do anything when I give it that command.
