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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
