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.

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.
