Alexa Ruxpin - Raspberry Pi & Alexa Powered Teddy Bear

There are tons of virtual assistants out on the market: Siri, Ok Google, Alexa, etc. As if virtual assistants weren’t creepy enough, I had this crazy idea…what if I made the virtual assistant real…kinda. Enter Teddy Ruxpin, an old animatronic teddy bear from the 80’s and 90’s. These bears were all the rage when I was a kid. Naturally, I decided to take the creepy little bear and hack it so that it ran Amazon Alexa. Now every time you ask it a question, it will move its eyes and mouth to answer your question! Let the nightmares begin 😉
