My experience with Alexa has me thinking more about home bots. Not all robots need to be mobile and my suspicion is that Alexa like entities will become more common in our homes earlier than Rosie like entities. It seems to be a natural transition to go from our smart phone based, social media and search engine interactions to an ambient bot that provides the same functionality by saying "Alexa."
I am still struggling with my copter but I did get software updates into it and learned a bunch about the arduino. May have to set for a while as I crank up my iBeacon and other Bluetooth low energy devices. More on that in a future post. Later!
