Surely many of you remember or have had a teddy bear in your childhood. In many countries it is usually the perfect Christmas gift, but currently it is not widely used due to the arrival of electronic toys. However, there are alternatives that combine the traditional and the electronic. In this case it has caught my attention the bear Alexa Ruspin, a very peculiar teddy bear.
Alexa Ruspin is a teddy bear who has an Arduino board and a Raspberry Pi board to be able to offer user interaction. Thus, Alexa Ruspin not only collects our voice but can respond to us and do other things that some parents may find annoying.
The Alexa Ruspin bear has an Arduino board inside that is connected to the Raspberry Pi. The use of Raspberry Pi is because inside the Alexa software, so we also have Artificial Intelligence in the stuffed animal.
Alexa Ruspin can spend our money just by listening to what we say in front of him
This is positive if we want to know things like how high Everest is or how long it will be, but it is uncomfortable if we do not have control and the plush toy with the child begin to make purchases in the Amazon store. This can be corrected, but of course you have to know how to modify it.
This unusual teddy bear It cannot be bought in toy stores but it can be built, for this we will need at least a teddy bear, an Arduino board and a Raspberry Pi board. The rest can be found in the official guide that its creators have published for the whole public. Alexa Ruspin is an interesting gift for this Christmas but it is also very dangerous if we are not careful, at least dangerous for our wallet Do not you think?
