Tech, geek, and cool stuff we find around the Web
Boo Amazon… boo
Is it free though?
In-car Alexa would be great. No more fiddling with buttons when you’re trying to keep your eyes on the road. I know some cars have voice commands now but they aren’t anything like Alexa or OK Google.
“Alexa, turn the Aircon down to 18 degrees”
Soon the CIA will be monitoring all things that you speak. Better not say anything incriminating in your own home.
Imagine seeing Alexa at the Super Bowl, no cap
This is not so sad
Alexa, play despacito
But this has been a thing for a while? I made a RPi Alexa with a headset microphone a few years ago
Alexa, play despacito for ten hours straight.
(“introducing the DIY suicide kit!”)
One week later…..aaaaand this one looks like a penis
Alexa Fleshlight out yet?
It still uses Bing as a search engine. I refuse to buy one until that changes.
Letting a community develop around your products is smart. Just wish they’d drop their feud with google
An alexa gadget that blows itself up.
Call it the Allahu Alexa
That’s awsome. Some devs have great ideas of their own. To bad Alexa Api is free and creating a business is tough to do.
As long as the devs receave a share for their inventions it’s great from Amazon.
I call this the dick kicker.
Alexa had always been open to 3rd party developers since I can remember. Echo is what amazon owns and have their special stuff built into their hardware.
How kind of them
Send us all your data’s minions
How generous of the CIA for letting me work for them for in exchange for eavesdropping on me.
My work has already been doing this for a while, don’t ask how but they managed to make Alexa talk to the cloud to speak out details about their car insurance info I.e NCD etc
“/u/ActualSupervillain, the perimeter sensors have detected a non-authorized object in contact with your front door.”
“Alexa, fire the turrets on its location.”
Third party API exploits is the way your personal data will be exploited. (Just like Facebook.)
Modding scene for Alexa
Cool, now they can spy on people with a wider variety of gadgets!
“Alexa listen to” should be gadget , where it listens to some music instead of secretly recording you talking /s. *Alexa listen to Beethoven’s entire symphony, quiz to follow*
Alexa, this is epic
Can’t wait for Alexa Chromecast support….
People in the 1990s: SPIES RUSSIANS OMG STAY AWAY THAT WATER IS POISON MY NEIGHBOR IS LISTENING THROUHJ THE PHONE LINE.
People today: I would love to have the perfect spy-device in every room in my house.
Alexa is racist
Can she use Google yet? If not, I’m still out.
Should we ALL be compensated FREE internet service forever or paid for not opting to volunteer or preferences/interests/curiosities/choices yet all our clicks and words are said to be monitored/counted for market research/product development/economy/valuable statistics that could be sold
Alexa play despacito sub español :v
Mycroft AI is an open source voice activation AI. It can work on both Raspberry Pi and Arduino too.
There is another one called Jasper, not sure about it’s details though.
This is quite concerning considering Alexa is listening at all times
They will do anything they can right now to make sure Alexa becomes as ubiquitous as possible. They want an amazon microphone in every house and car. Playing the long game.
Am I missing something? Hasn’t this always been available? I thought one of the first things people started doing was creating Alexas with their Raspberry Pis. The only drawback is it will not have all the access available of a regular Alexa device. For example, it cannot access music.
