This is an Alexa-enabled (voice) drink maker powered by a Raspberry Pi and AWS IoT.
This is a collection of 5 12V DC motors powered by a wall adapter and connected to a Rasberry Pi. The pi is listening to a AWS IoT mqtt queue for drink commands. The drink commands are issued by the user through the Amazon Echo. In order for the echo to respond, an Alexa Skills Kit “skill” was created to take the drink order and publish it to the AWS IoT queue that the Pi is listening to. Each of the 5 motors is connected to a bottle of alcohol and Alexa can prepare 15 types of drinks, namely a Negroni.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
