DIY Smart Assistant Speaker/Lamp (Google Home or Alexa) #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

From Duncan Smith on Hackster.io

This build was intended to be a combination of a smart speaker (run by Google Assistant) and a smart lamp (Philips Hue light bulb). However, this was quite an ambitious build so the design work could use some refining and for that reason I have included the Fusion 360 design files in case you want to make modifications, but please excuse the amateur design skills that will be clearly evident. This can be completed in a number of variations, though I am going to document just my steps but feel free to improvise wherever you like. This is a combination of 3D printed parts (enclosure mostly) and an assembly of various components, but I also opted to try my hand at Hydro-dipping the base for a cool finish – this is strictly optional and I will try to call it out in the materials list and instructions in case you want to skip this. No specialized tools are required and a 3D printer is not required – you can utilize a print service such as 3DHubs.com to obtain the 3D printed parts from a local printer.
