Plane Spotting with Pi and Amazon Alexa @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
project and write-up from Nick Sypteras via RaspberryPi.org.
A few months ago, I moved into a new apartment that has a sweet view of passing planes.
As an airplane fanatic, I’d often go to FlightRadar24.com to look up the different airplanes as they passed by, but after a while that became cumbersome.
So, I taught Alexa to do the work for me! Here’s the end result.
