UPDATE: We’ve extended the contest to August 31st 2016 to give you more time to build, learn and earn!
Raspberry Pi and cloud-based voice services like Amazon Alexa enable makers to populate and advance the Internet of Things. Accessibility is key: the Raspberry Pi’s powerful computing combined with the templates and self-service tools in the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) and Alexa Voice Service (AVS) enable voice control of just about any hardware.
Pick your favorite Rasberry Pi board, combine it with the Alexa ASK and/or AVS, and give life to a new voice-commanded hardware that was never seen before. We’d love to see how the community invents (and re-invents) voice-capable, connected devices.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
