Zach turned a Furby into an Amazon Echo. Introducing: Furlexa #Raspberrypi

Via howchoo

I thought I’d make Furby a little less annoying and give him an upgrade with a real brain. Step aside, Tin Man.

By combining a Raspberry Pi Zero W (a tiny computer), Amazon’s (mostly) open-source Alexa Voice Service software, and a few other electrical components, I converted my normal Furby into an Amazon Echo.

I give you: Furlexa.

It is my hope that you can either use this guide as a fun read or to build your own Furby Echo — I tried to write it in a style that any crowd would enjoy and I hope that I accomplished that goal.
