Create your very own Amazon Echo inside a Furby with a Raspberry Pi

Zach Levine has taken an annoying toy (a Furby) and stuffed it with a Raspberry Pi Zero W, a Pimoroni Speaker pHAT and a stepper motor driver board.

He has then installed the Amazon Alexa software on the Pi and programmed it to obey his commands, triggering the robotic behaviour of the Furby. You can read a complete account of the build here and see a video of it in action below:
