I bought a Amazon Echo off of Craigslist, which turned out to be 'bricked' (unregisterable) And Amazon did not want it back, So for fun I decided to 'hack' it and see what I can do with it.
THIS IS NOT AN INSTRUCTABLE, I Did not photograph the step by step progression as I was really free forming the idea.. Please do not bitch and moan to me about the lack of details.
I am JUST showing off what I made.
Step 1: The Idea ... . .
I have a hot tub, and have done several instructables about modifying a ipad for hot tub use, and other things.
I wanted a voice control system, but noise, and water always seemed to be a problem, The Amazon Echo while not water resistant does not need to be THAT close to the water where it will be splashed, yet still can hear commands and execute them.
Step 2: THE DEMO
Here is a video of the unit Completed and installed! <-- CLICK ME!
