HAL 9000: Overview

A HAL 9000 replica has been on my “to make” list since Adafruit started stocking their massive, red arcade button.  They even created a tutorial for building a HAL replica!  When the Alexa developers added support for a wake word last month, I knew I had to build it.  Rather than simply playing sound effects with the Pi, I wanted to include Amazon’s new Alexa sample that allows to run the Amazon Echo software on the Raspberry Pi 3.  Always a fan I tempting fate, I thought the HAL replica would be the perfect container for a voice assistant that has access to all of my smart home appliances.  What could go wrong?
