Amazon EchoWe received an Amazon Echo as a gift. It’s pretty cool. For the most part, it tells us the weather, and plays music–so far anyway.

I was happy to learn that there is a way to add additional functionality with Skills. I spent some time hacking around with the Alexa Skills Kit but have nothing worth sharing yet.

For those looking to use the Echo as an interface, Lindo St. Angel has a comprehensive writeup on their reference project, which is a voice controlled alarm panel. There’s a lot of good information and sample code in that repository.
