DIY Amazon echo?

Unread post by ChicagoBob » Thu Sep 15, 2016 12:03 am

Has anyone attempted using Android to make turn an ODroid into an Echo with a USB sound card or something?

I have seen a project for the PI but you needed to push a button so I was wondering
if this could be done via the C1 to make it truly like an Echo

OK this is looking easier but I am still not sure does the USB Audio Adapter work
Amazon has an Alexa app.
So if the sound board works in Android then this should be kind of plug and play.
Anyone try this?

I think it can be done with the Ubuntu version
This project demonstrates how to access and test the Alexa Voice Service using a Java client (running on a Raspberry Pi), and a Node.js server.

I did it with meveric's debian. I mean I worked through the instructions for rPi and did them on odroid-c1. Interesting, but not real useful -- it is just a demo and you have to re-authenticate, get the token, apply it and so on.

There is a golang client that looks like it could help, but it would not run for me and I got no response from the dev
